The egg because dinosaurs layed eggs :)

The chicken came first because God is a chicken and he created everything. So the chicken came first

If you were referring to the text :“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed
to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings,
but you were not willing.” – Matthew 23:37

Then you have completely
missed the point of this quote as it is a simple analogy and NOT referring to
the fact that god is a chicken.

Con

"Then you have completely missed the point of this quote as it is a simple analogy and NOT referring to the fact that god is a chicken."

Lets read that again:

"and NOT referring to the fact that god is a chicken."

One more time:

"the fact that god is a chicken"

Pro concedes that it is a fact that God is indeed a chicken, which means by extension the chicken did come before the egg!

Vote Con :D

Unchallengeable ones can be the best!

Pro, since this is your first debate: Don't give up, and stay on topic. Do that and you have a good chance at winning.

hehe :D that's a nice point you have put up there, but when we talk of this question, the reference is generally to the egg of the hen from which chicken is born, not considering the egg of dinosaur :D

alternatively one could ask if man came first or woman... what will be your answer then???
there can be both ways, but the point you've put up makes the debate unchallengeable :D

nice thinking there buddy.

Reasons for voting decision: I laughed myself silly from this one imabench, yet the level of trolling hurt conduct more than missing a round. Argument of course to con, as bad as trolling is, the tactic worked to make pro outright give up. Sources: Call this a pity vote if you want, but pro was confused enough by the trolling to try to make biblical sense of it, and found a passage in the bible which speaks on the subject. The citation could have been better, yet I'm impressed by the level of work that went into it all the same.
