He's referring to the gaps between the primes, not the integers.

You don't understand sales. If I'm selling games and my competitor down the road is limiting stock in order to make a little more money next week, guess what? I'll stock more games and steal his sales.
What you're talking about is collusion between stores. First, it's illegal. Second, even if it happened anyway, it's impossible to get that sort of agreement going between such a large number of stores. Collusion is easy when there's only 3 stores and the managers all play golf each Wednesday morning.
Not so easy when every Joe Soap is a competitor not in on the little secret.
Sorry to burst your little conspiracy bubble. I know how self-important such cynicism makes us feel.
This is what Evolution is. An answer to a MAJOR question that we previously believed necessitated the existence of a god. It doesn't refute god, it just removes one of the reasons for believing in him.
Sure, there are still many things we don't know. And religion is still pretending to explain them, or at least imply (dishonestly) that unless science can answer absolutely everything or have all answers perfectly correct to whatever arbitrary resolution the faithful requires, then by implication religion must have a point.
An explanation is describing something we don't understand in terms we do. In this way we can understand the new concept or phenomenon well enough to be able to predict it's impact on our lives. Saying "god did it", or "god works in mysterious ways" is not an explanation. It's an assertion completely devoid of rational arguments or evidence.
Your "evidence" that something random happened in your life that you see the hand of god in is called selection bias. Look it up. We understand human psychology well enough to be able to explain (and refute it as a basis for understanding or proof) it well enough to discount it. You believe because you were indoctrinated as a child the same way every other religion's adherents were. Or you simply like the way it makes you feel.
Try taking LSD, it's even better, but it doesn't make your life any better or more meaningful.
