Why did God get rid of the Trilobites?

Why did God get rid of the Trilobites?
They were so beautiful, peaceful species who flourished in our World's oceans for over one-quarter of a billion years:

Did God just want to make us feel bad?  And, in feeling bad, maybe lead more of us to Jesus, Allah, etc.?
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

They refused to sacrifice, circumcise, and stone to death their children. God ain’t having that shit.

No... he just decided he didn't like the way they tasted!

Assuming there is one god.
Assuming this god has existed forever.
Assuming this god has a brain and can think and has feelings.

Eventually, he is going to get bored. It is unavoidable. After 100 y, after 1 million y, after 1 trillion y, after 10^10000000^1000000000 y, eventually, there comes a point when things become repetitive.
It is a very lonely existence if there is only one of your kind (1 god).

If you are going to creates universes, stars, planets and life, might as well kill some and create new ones.
Who will complain? Who can stop you? Does morality matter?

The christian and muslim concept of heaven. Is there really such a thing? Aren’t you going to get bored eventually?
How does the Bible and Koran describe heaven?

In mormonism, you will be a god with your own planet in the afterlife, but aren’t you going to get bored as well?

He didn't. It's all a ruse. Since the earth is only 6000 years old all fossils were put into the earth at that time to tempt poor bastards like us 6000 years later to the dark side by making evolution look like a viable theory to test our faith, when none of it actually happened. Stop looking for reasons to doubt God's word - all you need is the magic book. It explains everything.

I have had numerous conversations on other forums where Christians were making exactly this and other related arguments. Same goes for distances between stars etc. Their refutation for light having observably travelled billions of years to reach us being proof of a Universe far older than 6000 years was that God created all of the light beams in mid-flight - at the same time as all of the "Stuff" in the Universe in the exact state that it exists today - so they would appear to reach us at the exact moment he intended (ie. now that he has deemed us to invent telescopes). It never occurred to the person that if God had that power / intention they he wouldn't have to create any stars at all - just continuously creating mid-flight light beams and other radiation would do.

It astounds me that seemingly rational and functioning people can actually believe that if there is a God, he would go to such lengths to create a completely "fake" Universe with the level of intricacy required to continually defeat new levels of the science onion an still remain consistent just for our benefit.

At work.

Remember, Raptor Jesus had to go extinct to allow Humanity to evolve into their sins.

Under its claws and the stone eyed witnesses of Raptor Jesus Trilobite apostles.....
