Calling all braniacs! What's the final conclusion? Sun Mar 18, 2007 2:37:17 PM#35779Perm Link
Which came first the chicken or the egg?
I have to say, since new species are anomalous offspring from the previous species or cross breeding between species, it would stand to reason an egg with a chicken in it had to come from a species the chicken evolved from, and had the change in genetic make up that did not previously exist, and therefore, the egg came before the chicken!
Duh, the Chicken came first. That is what god made.
And I don't need yo fuckin Christian hatin' attitude.
Although I am religious, from an evolution standpoint, my bet is that there was no "chicken", as the chicken came into being over thousands of years of evolution. Therefore, some fucked up bird came first, which after 3 million years, it finished its transformation into the chicken.
Its not who a person is in the inside, but what he does that defines him.
Ah, but consider the possibility that a chicken was an evolutionary process from a species of animal which was a live birth species. Thus, the new offshoot of this species (the chicken) evolved first and THEN for adaptive purposes became an egg laying creature...
Age old question. I wish that scientists would actually find the exact answer to this.
Kind of on the same thread: Which animal do you eat both before they are born and after they are born? That would be the chicken. This was the question on our local radio station the other day. Actually alot of people guessed wrong.
Actually, if you read the Bible, it says that God made everything in it's form - meaning that things were fully grown when they were created. So, from the Biblical viewpoint, there's no question - the chicken came first and produced after its kind.
I guess we could debate this until the end of time, and may never really know the answer, or maybe not the answer we want to hear. Personally, I think I'll stick with the Bible's answer. I just can't believe that an egg, which HAS to be fertilized to develop into a chicken, could have shown up on earth without there being something that LAID that fertilized egg.
