"Everybody wants to feel like God from time to time. That’s part of the appeal of games that involve evolution, like Spore or Pokémon. To witness evolution in the real world, you have to do something like make a bunch of fruit flies have sex with each other for several generations. Granted, this might actually be more interesting than trying to get a Magikarp up to level 20, but once you do, you get a freaking Gyrados! Dragon Evolution should be a good God-gig in theory, but it would be a lot better if there were more of a world for us to influence."
