What Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?
Pull up a chair and allow me to explain this to you. Would you like to take notes? Okay, I'll wait...no I don't have a ...oh, great, you have your own pen.
What came first, the chicken or the egg? This actually has an answer, and that answer is the egg.
See, the way evolution works is that a species undergoes genetic mutation, causing its offspring to demonstrate characteristics different from its mother or father. At some point, the species that was a genetic step behind the chicken became pregnant, and the egg it laid contained what would become what we think of as chicken, which differed in some small way from its mother.
In short, the genetic forerunner of the chicken laid an egg, which contained the first chicken.
Therefore, the egg is first.
I know. I just blew your mind.
