What adherents of the Abrahamic religions have a hard time grasping is cosmological, geological and evolutionary time scales. This is not surprising, given the 6000-year time-frame for biblically-derived time scales.
"The theory of evolution by natural selection". Evolution is a fact. It's natural selection that's a theory . . . but it's so overwhelmingly confirmed by evidence, that there's little doubt that it is the actual mechanism of evolution.
Evolution has had 3.5 billion years to produce the variety of life we see on Earth. Why single out the nose? What about the ears or eyes? Just because you haven't tried to understand evolution doesn't mean it's not true.
Genetics, when considered in context of millions or even billions of years, is not a difficult concept to grasp. Instead of taking the lazy way out, you should try to fill the voids of your ignorance with the information freely available on the Internet.
Your position seems to be: "I don't want to spend the effort to learn about the world I live in. Therefore, God did it."
Our understanding is far from complete. We know there's much we don't understand. Certainty is reserved for religion. Who needs facts when you can skate by on authority?
As Bertrand Russell said, "In the modern world, the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt."
