Which came first - the chicken or the egg? Now plase, keep an open mind here while reviewing this and you'll come to understand and recognize I think the question posed from within the context given









of the moon, the earth and the sun. I'm putting it in metaphysics because I'm also posing the question of what might constitute an intelligent design. However, it stars to get a little complicated if you consider that there IS an egg, which came first and that the other objects MUST have been created according to the dimensions of the original body. "The moon is the mother of the universe" (ancient Egyptian saying).

Might it have been the "egg" that was "rejected by the builders" that became the keystone? Put that in your pipe and smoke it!


And no I'm not insane, I haven't gone "looney"!

I believe fish in the sea were laying eggs before any land animals (Chickens) did. So i guess the answer is egg.

Most certainly.

And from an evolutionary perspective, the last "almost-chicken" laid an egg, from which emerged the first chicken. This, egg before chicken.

Eggs are too young and roosters not that courteous. Goodbye post.

I got in a drunk argument about this once. Egg had too.

I've always though this was the dumbest debate ever. EGG OBVIOUS.


But, in the spirit, I'll try and play the other side.

The question in itself implies the existence of the chicken. So, no argument including other species laying eggs can be accepted. Therefore, since the egg must come from an organism with reproductive capability, the chicken is the answer.

Scientists yesterday claimed to have cracked the riddle of whether the chicken or the egg came first. The answer, they say, is the chicken. Researchers found that the formation of egg shells relies on a protein found only in a chicken's ovaries.

I believe in a creator.

To understand what came first.

Imagine this...

The past affects the present, the present affects the past and both affect the future whilst the future affects the present and past.

The problem is that every single persons reality is subjective and that is all that makes it so complicated to discuss.

In the end, this question is quite pointless to ask anyone else. Only an individual viewpoint can be established with experience of all the above.

Live life and get the answers.

Then experience being told you are full of crap by everyone else for the very reasons I have just pointed out

God created the chicken and then the chicken started laying eggs.

Which came first NewAge Man or his looniness? Of course NewAge Man. If we extrapolate that in the context and the order of the question we could say the Chicken came first.

Unless the looniness was genetic, hmmmm...
Jus' jokin' brudda!

However, I can see a wet spot of primordial "goo" soaking up cosmic nutrients and then developing a protective hardening--a shell--around it and then...Cock-A-Doodle-Doo!

But I'm with ya on the intelligent design part.

The truths are as abundant as the perspectives.

Which came first the feast or the faeces?

Why you pander to their need to compartmentalise using definitions of illusion I do not know. Don't fear the warrior within.

What's real funny is that when OTHERS post stuff like that they get visited by the mods.

As for the question in the OP,
What if the eggs and chickens are all of the same sex?

Would two female chickens, or two male chickens, be able to produce an egg?

It's all to do with flair and finesse. Some got it, some don't.

Eggs evolved as a viable and successful methodology for reproduction long before Chickens evolved as a viable and successful methodology for making eggs.

I suspect, however, even before chickens, lots of stuff still tasted liked chicken.

Harmless fun is never a reason for Mods to visit.


As for the question, I believe everything came from the Oceans and just evolved...from the tiniest micro-organisms to everything we have today. What about the issue of birds having evolved from Dinosaurs?

If that's the case then it rules out the egg/chicken question altogether IMO. Or take it back even further and we have to have an egg from the ocean to begin the entire cycle.

But, I like my rooster joke...


Peace

I don't understand the question. Why can't it be a combination of both?
