Obviously, the chicken came before the egg. In order for there to be an egg, there needed to be a chicken.

Answer this question: where did the chicken come from?

Chickens come from eggs.

No, chickens did not first come from the egg. The chicken or an animal related to chicken existed first. Science and Religion can both prove this. According to Darwins theory of evolution, species change through mutations. The chicken came from a bird-like animal an mutated over time. Therefore the chicken came first. If we look to theology, the chicken existed by the hand of God. God is all powerful and the bible/torah/quran and all other religious texts that mention God and his/her creation of the chicken arriving first is correct.

Once upon a time, there was a man named Charles Darwin. Bored one day, he created a little theory called EVOLUTION.

Darwin's theory of evolution states that species change over time via mutation and selection. Since DNA can be modified only before birth, a mutation must have taken place at conception or within an egg such that an animal similar to a chicken, but not a chicken, laid the first chicken egg. The modern chicken was believed to have descended from another closely related species of birds, the red junglefowl, but recently discovered genetic evidence suggests that the modern domestic chicken is a hybrid descendant of both the red junglefowl and the grey junglefowl. Assuming the evidence bears out, a hybrid is a compelling scenario that the chicken egg, based on the second definition, came before the chicken.

Voting pro is voting against evolution. Therefore, I win by default. Thanks for your wasted time.
