Because that has never happened and history shows it can never happen.

Lack of stress hasn't hampered the evolution of sharks and many other
fishes. Lack of stress doesn't cause species to die off. The observation of
puncuated equilibrium proves this.

(Punctuated equilibrium is the observation that many species do not under
go gradual evolution but instead, they will remain stable for many millions
of years (-- remain in equilibrium) before suddenly making many drastic
changes ( -- punctuated by "bouts" of mutations)).
