Chicken or the Egg?

Post by NicolasWSOP on Sat May 30, 2009 10:47 pm

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

In biology, the term "egg" is biologically ambiguous and the theory of punctuated equilibrium,
for example, does not support a clear division between a chicken and
the closest ancestors of that chicken. Both of those factors tend to
contribute to the circular nature of the question (causing problems
similar to either a hasty generalization or a fallacy of definition). Below are a few different definitions that could be assumed and their logical outcomes.

  • If the egg is not necessarily of any specific type: Then it
    could be said that the egg came first, because other animals had been
    laying eggs long before chickens existed, such as the dinosaurs. In biology, egg is used as a general term in this way.
  • If only an egg that will hatch into a chicken can be considered a chicken egg:
    Then a re-consideration of the original question suggests: Some animal
    other than a chicken laid the first chicken egg which contained the
    first chicken. In this case the chicken egg came before the chicken. In
    reality, many scientific theories suggest that this would not have been
    a simple event. For example, the theory of punctuated equilibrium theorizes that the actual speciation
    of an organism from its ancestral species is usually the result of many
    mutations combined with new geographical surroundings, called cladogenesis.
  • If only an egg laid by a chicken can be considered a chicken egg:
    Then a re-consideration of the original question suggests: The first
    chicken (which hatched from a non-chicken egg) laid the first chicken
    egg. In this case the chicken came before the chicken egg. Again, this
    would not necessarily be a straightforward event.


So, which came first, the chicken or the egg? You decide!

Lol, always a funny question, my brother ask me all the time.
I think there is no answer because if the chicken came first then where the chicken come out of?, a egg?Unless a dinosaur transformed into a chicken. If egg comes first, then who laid the egg?

So probably chicken came first since a dinosaur transformed into a chicken like RAWRR!! LOL

What a Face evolution decided this as eventually a bird of one type evolved slowly into the first "chicken" laying eggs all along the way ....but no worries on the brain they both are very tasty ...scrambled,sunnyside up or over easy or grilled,fried or baked Laughing Laughing Laughing
