Ah, possibly the most debated question of all time: Which came first; the chicken or the egg?
I will be debating that the egg came first. (Con)

If anyone is willing to debate that the chicken came first, be my guest and enter this debate.

Thanks for reading! Leave a comment if you want to debate a certain topic with me!


The chicken came first,

Supported by basic logic the only way the egg could have been created is if there was a chicken first. Eggs are created directly from the chickens reproductive process.

If you believe God created the Earth or the Big Bang did and evolution occurred my point still stands, there can be no eggs if a chicken had not come directly before it first.

Thank you Nuke for accepting this debate.

Chickens first became domesticated in China at around 5400 BC (, while the Eoraptor is known to be at least 230 million years old. Eoraptors and other dinosaurs are born from eggs, thus, the egg came first. (


You are assuming the rate of the chickens evolution. If the Eoraptor offspring mutated it would have to have several scores more offspring before it would even look like a chicken assuming they all have the chicken like mutation. Clearly later down the line a chicken like creature would have evolved and an egg to a another----

Wait, it all makes sense...

You're right, I have no other points at this time.
