God kept trying to give 19th century religious people the gift of time, but a lot of them felt the gift as an attack.

"This is a big part of how I did it. I did it with time, and lots of it." People paying attention to layers of rocks and the stone critters in them kept inferring more and more time.

And that time gave room for animals to evolve and sometimes evolve differently and become different species. It is really a lot of time, impressive. God made a lot of time, and we happen in it. That would be one way to feel about it all, but the loudest reactors to the gift of time saw it as anti-God, rather God's amazing way of working.
