Chicken Or The Egg?

Before scientist came in and spoiled the fun, this topic was one that I use to love to think about and again it’s a pretty classic philosophy type question yet I found that once I’d come to my answer it was so very simple and obvious that it seemed almost stupid that it took me so long to come up with an actual answer.
I’m all about thinking for yourself so while I’m putting down my answer to this question (which was something I came up with before it was proven though science, science proved me right hee hee) I encourage everyone not to agree just because it seems reasonable, if you’ve got your own answer or answered this question before science I’d love to hear how you came up with said answer.

Chicken or the egg, which came first? There are two stand points to take when thinking about this question and without taking one of those stand points the question becomes more or less impossible to answer, in my view at least the lack of a stand point is what creates the circular nature of the question. The first and easiest stand point to take would be the stand point of Creationism (when I use this term I mean any creation myth, not just the Christian/Catholic story), this causes the question to become more or less irrelevant. Any deity would create several animals at once, including baby animals and non-born ones which would include a chicken and an egg. Therefore they’d be created together and neither would come first or they both came first…that would depend on what sort of semantics you wanted to talk about and that’s not the point of this post.
Clearly the second stand point would be Evolution, now I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to the specifics of Evolution because I got board with the specifics but the basics would be little things mutated into bigger things over the course of millions of years. By this line of logic the egg would have come first because it’s what contains the genetic coding for the chicken and an egg is much much smaller then a full grown chicken. Thus the egg came before the chicken from a Evolution stand point.

About Mandy

I live with an assortment of illnesses and one illness causes me chronic pain so I live with my dad. I'm lucky that Dad looks after me, even though I'm an adult, which allows me to actually live a life. I love animals. I have two dogs, five adopted guinea pigs, and two small tropical fish tanks. I listen and sing (badly) to mainly rock music. I really enjoy reading and often read an assortment of different genres but I do have a special interest in true crime. I was studying psychology with the intention of specialising in Forensic Psychology and when I'm able to I will return to university.
