While scientists have finally answered that age old question! We'll have to come up with something else to debate about. " Put simply, the reason is down to the fact that genetic material does not change during an animal's life.

Quoting Mrmeangenes (Reply 3): I take no chances: I make something called "Which Came First ?" salad,containing lettuce,tomato,small pieces of cooked chicken breast, and sliced hard-boiled egg.
How's that for a total, time-wasting non-sequitur ?
I don't know, but it sounds good
Quoting Boeinglover24 (Reply 4): If you believe in the bible they you must say chicken.....
It says it somewhere in there>
It does not say anything specific, but it goes along with "god created man in his image". Something about one of the 7 days, when god created all the animals or something er rahter.

The chicken came first.
To create a chicken you need the egg from the female and the fertilization from the male.
The chicken came first.
And I was thoroughly amused at the contents of the article:
"Now a team made up of a geneticist, philosopher and chicken farmer claim to have found an answer." - Does this represent a viable scientific team?
"Mr Papineau, an expert in the philosophy of science, agreed that the first chicken came from an egg and that proves there were chicken eggs before chickens." - Sure - just because he agrees proves it - hahahaha
"Bourns, chairman of trade body Great British Chicken, said he was also firmly in the pro-egg camp. He said: "Eggs were around long before the first chicken arrived. Of course, they may not have been chicken eggs as we see them today, but they were eggs."" - This is too cute.
And finally - I love the last paragraph!
"The debate, which may come as a relief to those with argumentative relatives, was organized by Disney to promote the release of the film "Chicken Little" on DVD."
This was a great thread - thanks for a good laugh - I really enjoyed it.

A chicken and an egg are laying in bed. The chicken is sitting pack contentedly, smiling, and smoking a cigarette. The egg looks disconsolate as she sits on the edge of the bed. "Well," she said, " I guess that question is answered..."
