    Which came first?
  2. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Duh, the egg.
    I mean, dinosaurs laid eggs long before chickens even existed!

    When did the first egg appear and when did the first creature run away from something it was afraid of?

    Being a creationist, I have to say that the chicken came first.

    And the first creature ran away from something it was afraid of the minute the roach was created!

    It has to be the egg. The question specifically asks for the beginnings of the "egg" and the "chicken". We know the the chicken came around much, much later than the first creature that could lay eggs.

    Really??? That is very interesting.......

    Yes, but the real question is "Why did the space Aliens leave the fake dinosaur bones here for us to discover?" :rolleyes: :D

    REGARDLESS if the were or there were not dinosaurs here on Earth, the chicken was not the first bird. Therefore, the egg came first.

    They didn't leave the bones, they are the bones.......and they only appear to be millions of years old.... :rolleyes:

    Even if there were no other birds, fish also lay eggs. And some people think the universe hatched from an egg...

    Chicken loses, egg wins.

    Why isn't anyone going to the actual authority on this, it is pretty clearly laid out in Genesis 1-20 "And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven." Genesis 1-21 "And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that [/I]it was good." God created every fowl on the 5th day, doesn't say he created their eggs, so there you have it.

    So why did the council of Nicea hide all the other books that could have been in the bible - to blow a hole in this?
  16. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Chickens are not waterfowl. Chickens were not created until the sixth day. So unless none of the aquatic, oviparous animals laid any eggs until the sixth day, the egg easily beat the chicken. Also, female animals always have ova in their bodies, and ova are usually called "egg cells" or just "eggs." And plants have ova too. These animals were (allegedly) created before the chicken...

    So, the chicken loses and the egg still wins.

    Why do you hate Jesus?

    Not to disrespect, Melkor, but the Bible never mentions how the creation happens, but there is plenty of evidence to support that God does follow rules. As such, he could have very easily created the chicken by producing an egg that the chicken would hatch from and this would in no way refute the Biblical account.

    The question still remains...

    Raptor Jesus agrees.

    So does the answer: egg wins.
