what came first?????the chicken or the egg?
the omellette with a side dish of spicy wings
A chicken and an egg are lying in bed. The chicken is smoking a cigarette with a satisfied look on his face, and the egg is looking a bit put out.
Well i guess we answered that question, mutters the egg.
nope it was the egg.
Well, really it depends. If you're a creationist, the chicken must have come first. The Bible says, "And God said, 'Let the waters bring forth abundantly and swarm with living creatures, and let birds fly over the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.'" It does not say, "And God said, 'Let the birds hatch forth from their eggs before flying over the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.'" I know, I know, chickens don't fly. Point being: God created the first birds without the use of eggs.
If you're an evolutionist, the answer is the egg. Why? Because way back before chickens existed, an animal that wasn't a chicken, but which was damn close to one, laid an egg with a genetic mutation. Forth from this genetically mutated egg came the first chicken. You might say, "Hey, that's cheating." Well, maybe the better question is: "What came first: the reptile or the egg?" Seeing as reptiles, not chickens, perfected the first external eggs.
But the egg has to be made by a chicken, obviously.
and the chicken had to have had hatched from an egg
too painful to think, why must you come up with such thought demanding threads. LOL just kidding.
I will always say the egg. You will never change my mind.
but sheeeeee, where did the egg come from???????
from one of life's little miracles my friend. OK!
o ok, what kind of miracle?
And we've already determined that the egg came from a chicken. So there we have it. Chicken first, egg followed. I told you it was obvious.
right, so where did the chicken come from that laid the egg?
Follow the thread. It's obvious.
But there's no way to prove that God created the chicken, which created the egg. So no, it's not obvious.
Sure it's obvious, you just need to try a little harder. There has to be a chicken for there to be an egg.
Eggs were around millions of years before chickens even came into existance, that's a proven fact. Chickens came from dinosaur eggs, so the egg came first.
Unless you're a creationist!
You're saying a dinosaur laid an egg and a chicken came out of it? I don't think so.
this is turning out to be a good thread
i agree there robert, but i mean come on..a chicken didnt just suddenly appear one day and lay an egg, and if it did, that egg would not have hatched unless it was fertalised, threfore, there had to have been a rooster involved..and where did he come from????
and on the other hand, one fine sunny day, an egg did not just descend from the heavens and hatch out a wierd little critter that just reproduced all by herself
One of lifes great puzzles.
A question that will never be answered.
Because evolutionists believe that chicken egg came from some form of reptilian bird.
Creationists believe that the chickens just came out of nowhere.
All too difficult...
I agree completely with the Freshmaker.
