However, knowing that the genetic traits of divinity or creativity were potentially dangerous in immature hands, they left these areas undeveloped until they deemed that the life forms had reached an evolutionary stage capable of dealing with such powers. They watched the life forms further diversify themselves into different species and watched the path of evolution that each species followed. They watched how the species interacted with one another, for that was the crux of their experiment. Since the original intent was to see if different life forms could develop a harmonious relationship among themselves, it was decided that gods would not interfere in this process.
Turn Divinity on or Not?
The project went on until an unforeseen situation compelled the gods to interfere: the explosive growth of the dinosaurs. At the top of the food chain, the dinosaurs not only had an insatiable appetite but also a fierce character that harmed every species of the sea, air, and land. The dinosaurs eventually reached a point beyond which they would have threatened the survival of other species on Earth. So the gods discussed the problem and voted unanimously to rid the Earth of the dinosaurs. Therefore, they loosed a virus that selectively destroyed only the dinosaurs, and then they were no more.
