It seems that the designer DOES watch what it created, because it KEEPS creating them, and after all the mass Extinctions it 'made' billions more. And as far as we know, only one of the mass extinctions in history was caused by an asteroid impact, a lot of them were natural changes in the environment. So why didn't the designer start designing future iterations of creatures that were resillient to those kinds of changes?

Seems to me the title should be at least changed to 'lacks common sense designer'.
