When the light isn't changing, but your subjects are varying from dark to light, all auto exposure will do is mess up your shot. It's not complex math. There's a reason to know how to use manual exposure and to know when to use it. To add to that, when Program mode is able to read my brain and know when I want limited depth of field vs. deep depth of field or blurred movement vs. a subject that's frozen in place, I'll consider using it more often. Without frequent overrides, it's a good way to end up with average looking shots vs. really good ones.
