    If You're Religious:

    The chicken came first. God created all CREATURES, not eggs. You lot should know better.

    If you you believe in the theory of evolution (or science in general):

    The Egg came first. Quite clearly, the chicken we have known today wouldn't become the chicken while it's pre-evolutionary form was alive, therefore it would of evolved into the chicken while inside the egg.

    If you believe in the theory of evolution, but insist on "In order for it to be a chicken egg, it must come from a chicken":

    Then the chicken came first. It's simply one step on from the answer above. The pre-evolved form gave birth to the egg, which out came the chicken, and then the chicken laid the egg.

    THERE. Solved. Whether you believe god invented all creatures from the get go or they evolved into what we are today is your business, I'm just giving you the answers all the while being in the context of your various beliefs.

    I win.

    I've never seen that before. But at least I know I'm still right!

    I always imagined what that event must have looked like. Two proud proto-chicken parents waiting for the egg to hatch, and out comes this weird yellow thing.

    "This is all your fault! This kind of thing never happened on my side of the family!"
    "Oh, pin all the blame on me, will you! I told you you shouldn't have smoked so much while you were sitting on it!
    "Oh, oh, blaming me, are we? How do you know it wasn't all that LSD you ate while in college?"
    "It was recreational! They said it wouldn't have side effects!"
    "Well, no matter. What are we going to do?"
    "What can we do? Hope he grows out of it? Like in "Ugly proto-duckling." We can't just lock it in the cellar. like what your family did with your cousin George, that's all I'm saying."
    "I heard that! And George is just... a bit... special! Not... this!"

    both turn to the chick:
    "Don't worry, son, we love you just the way you are."








    "I still think it was the smoking."

    I believe both the chicken and the egg were collectively spewed from the ovaries of the flying spaghetti monster simultaneously.

    the egg came first, because dinossaurs had eggs, and they were around before chickens....

    Actually, the way evolution works says that the egg must have come first, regardless. Change (and speciation) does not occur in the individual. The first chicken came from recombination of genes of two almost-chickens (and probably some mutations). So when these two almost-chickens had their gametes fused, out popped the very first chicken egg, from which the chicken hatched. Basically, a chicken must come from a chicken egg, but a chicken egg could arise from two non-chicken parents provided that the right chicken genes went into it.

    Just like to point out DNA changes during life, it would take a large leap (and a damn improbable one) to go from proto chicken to chicken but still.

    Yeah, I know...

    It was better the first time I told it, but I just couldn't remember how it went.




    It was probably much shorter, though [​IMG]


    Oh well [​IMG]



    EDIT: Found it!


    Yep. Much shorter. Man, I suck [​IMG]
