some one has to be born for there to be some one to die
To answer your question, "Was an egg that cracked, a chicken that died or an egg that never hatched."
Well, it really depends on the egg. An egg that cracked, is simply an egg that cracked. Whether or not it has a young chicken inside of it or not is entirely up to whether it was fertilized or not. Chickens will lay eggs with or without a rooster fertilizing them. This is why small baby chickens are not found in your skillet on mornings that you make eggs for breakfast.

I hope this answers your question on your cracked egg dilemma.
Onto your next point...
"Some one has to be born for there to be some one to die."
Not sure how we jumped from your lack of understanding on chickens and their eggs, but you also have a lack of understanding on the concept of life and death. Something does not have to be "born", as in bursting out of a mother's womb, in order to be considered "alive".
Only things that were once alive, can die.
What is "life"? According to the dictionary, "the condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic objects and dead organisms, being manifested by growth through metabolism, reproduction, and the power of adaptation to environment through changes originating internally."
Death would be when those conditions stop. This is the biological way of looking at life and death.
The babies cells start to divide at conception, this means it is growing, adapting to its environment, and responding to stimuli around it. The baby has its own set of DNA, different from that of its parents. It is a human...a young human, but still a human.
Sperm live and die, but will never be human. So do skin cells. When a sperm, and an ovum, come together and into fertilization...they become something more than themselves. They become a new distinct human.
So I hope we answered your egg dilemma, and gave you some clarification on "birth" vs "life".
i guess the question becomes, is a fetus aware.. answer is simply though
"I guess the question becomes, is a fetus aware...answer is simply though"
Aware of what?
Are you aware when you're sleeping?
Is a person in a coma aware?
Is an infant aware the same way you are aware?
Aware of what, it's surroundings? Being human? Is it aware of emotions like sorrow and grief? Does it know what year it is?
Are people with dementia aware?
What in God's name are you asking?
a fetus is an unborn, an egg that never hatched, no death involved
technically you cant be aware of dying if you are unaware
I'm not sure if you're seriously stupid, or if you're a troll.
