So, if you had to make these assumptions, what reasons do you see for the Creator to choose gradual naturalistic processes, as opposed to an undeniably divine creation event?

One word

fun

It would be so much more interesting to create a system then dabble with it a bit to guide the eventual outcome.
Maybe send the odd asteroid to wipe out a failed branch of life that seems to be going nowhere then gently encourage a new species to dominance.

We've all played that kind of game on our computers at some time I would think.

Making everything in an already completed state would be kind of boring and an omnipotent being with nothing but an eternity of the same old same old ahead of him/her/it must be looking for something interesting to pass the time.

If I were that being I would do it exactly the way that we see it. A poke here, a prod there. just little, almost undetectable changes to tweak the outcome.

the ultimate God Game lol
