Life's greatest question: Chicken or the Egg?

What comes first, the chicken or the egg?

Different people answers this question different ways, some people, like Danny Jones, just points at the camera and yell: THE EGG (McFly Interview).

Other would yell THE CHICKEN!

Chicken Run (2000) addressed this question as they closed the film:
“If you don't have a chicken, where are you going to get the egg?”
“From the chicken that comes from the egg.”
“Yeah, but you have to have an egg to have a chicken.”
“Yeah, but you've got to get the chicken first to get the egg, and then you get the egg... to get the chicken out of... ”
“Hang on, let's go over this again?”

You can see they failed to answer the question adequately.

It's one of those questions you eternally pounder on if you're uneducated or extremely religious (GOD CREATED CHICKENS, THEY CAME FROM NO EGGS! NO BELLYBUTTONS!).

An educated evolutionist (or a high school graduate who did biology) would tell you:
Chickens evolved from a tiny life form which then slowly adapted to life on land. Due to protection of the young... blah blah blah blah.

You get my point.

So this conclude my close examination of the chicken and the egg.

I shall now finish food and then get ready to go out!

Still poundering,

Do chickens though? Okay I'm going to sound like the ultimate seed here, but I really know nothing about how chickens reproduce. It is probably better it stays that way.

(i read somewhere that) it was indeed the EGG that came first; for you see, the chicken is a hybrid of 2 prehistoric birds--- and for the chicken to come about, two species of dino-birds must have been mating over a long period of time.. or just mated once and created a miracle food.. *cough* i mean bird. therefore it is only natural for the EGG of a chicken to come first--- from a not-chicken (i.e. a dino-bird) :D

i like this theory best (:
