Holy what the make sense?
The correct answer is that neither the chicken nor the egg came first. There was a recent ancestor to the chicken that laid eggs and eventually evolved. Faith is not required to believe that at all!

Well, eggs of other creatures came long before there were chickens.

Eggs have been around for many hundreds of millions of years.
Chickens have not.

Amniotic shelled eggs predate chickens by three hundred million years.

What the fuck was your point again?

The old God and the rock paradox. Religion can't answer this because it uses logic. Either God can or God cannot make a rock so heavy that He cannot lift it. So no matter which one you choose you're still an idiot.

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
12/6/2007 11:59:53 PM
The egg came first, obviously. What laid the egg was not quite a chicken.

If I believed the eggs I had for breakfast were chicken eggs, they were. And if I lacked faith, they were ham.

Methinks that someday, the fundies are going to consider the word "science" itself to have the equivalent shock value as the word "fuck". You can almost see them mentally sneering whenever they use it in a sentence.

Eggs for entree.
Chicken for main.
I'll skip dessert if it's bullshit thank you very much.

Chickens come from chicken eggs = Science is powered by faith?
My head hurts. This requires immediate sterilization.

The only paradox I see is how did you find food for the previous part of your pathetic life?

Jimmy- I like George Carlin's routine where he's playing the part of a dumbass describing God;
"Yeah yer basic God there is so strong He could lift a Buick. He could throw a boat - over a hedge!"

Oh good, another shithouse philosopher. Just what the world needs.
12/7/2007 3:42:51 AM
The chicken-egg problem is no sciene question, it's a philosophical question, shithead...

"The old chicken or the egg paradox."
It's only a paradox to fundie assholes.
"Science can't answer this because it uses the present as the key to the past."
Pssst, fundtard, eggs have been around hundreds of millions of years before chickens.
"Todays chickens come only from a chicken eggs...."
Yep if chickens popped out of any other kind of eggs that would disprove evolution.
"....and chicken eggs is only hatched from chickens."
"So no matter which you you choice it's based on faith."
No, its science. Fundies are so wrapped up in their religion that they can't tell the difference between science and faith. However, the rest of us can.

To stay consistent with the pro-life stance a fundie must declare that the egg IS a chicken.
12/7/2007 5:24:15 AM
A failure is you!
The eggs came first.
Dinosaurs laid eggs. Some of these dinosaurs eventually evolved into birds (and thus, chickens).

Don't you mean the Cock? :-)

There were eggs LONG before there were chickens.
If that's too broad for you, then consider the first fowl one would qualify as a chicken would have been born from parents that did NOT qualify as "chickens", therefore the egg came first there too.

You fail at coherence.
12/7/2007 6:07:21 AM
Of course! The answer is in the bible!
No, Wait. It isn't.
