A Bit offtopic here again...

In the philosophy that God created Adam and Eve I should say that the chicken was 1st. I mean if He can create human why not animals.
What's you own opinion?

Which came first — the chicken or the egg?

The question has a reputation for being difficult, perhaps even impossible, to answer. Philosophers treat it as a conundrum. But in the hands of an experimental scientist, the question is simple and straightforward, and the answer is easily obtained.

I doubt that I am the first to solve the chicken-and-egg problem, but a search of the scientific literature turned up surprisingly few accounts — none, in fact — of previous work. Here, then, is an account of my work on what turns out to be a trivial question.

How the Problem was Solved
Which came first — the chicken of the egg? I tackled the question experimentally, using a chicken, an egg, and the Dutch postal service.

I mailed the chicken and the egg, each in its own separate packaging, and kept careful track of when each shipment was sent from a post office in Rotterdam, and when it subsequently arrived at its intended destination in Groningen.

Bon Voyage

I mailed both the chicken and the egg at 9:40 a.m., on a Monday morning, from the Rotterdam . The staff there told methat this was the first chicken anyone had mailed in recent memory, and perhaps ever. Nonetheless, the postal employees handled both the chicken and the egg deftly, with dispatch, and with courtesy.

The intended destination for both packages was the Post Office in Groningen, which is located in the far North of Holland.

Results

The Post Office in Groningen is open at 8 in the morning.

I inquired once per hour for both the chicken and the egg.

That day, Monday, neither the chicken nor the egg arrived.
The next day, Tuesday, neither the chicken nor the egg arrived.

The chicken arrived at 10:31 a.m. Wednesday. The staff at the post office told me that this was the first chicken anyone had mailed to the Post Office in recent memory, and perhaps ever.

The egg arrived that same day, at 9:37 p.m., eleven hours after the chicken.

Conclusion

It has now been empirically determined that the chicken came first, the egg second.

However, seeing the history of previous questions that were taken up first by philosophers and only later by scientists, I am loath to predict that these results — clear as they are — will settle the question to everyone’s satisfaction.

Well, the chicken had to come out of an egg.

But did that egg necessarily have to come from a chicken?

It turns out that the species (kinds) of animals that are alive today were not always around. Long ago, there were different kinds of animals.

Over time, later generations of animals are a little different than the generations that were before them - after all, you are different from your parents. So, long ago, there were different animals on earth, whose children's children's children's... children are today's chickens.

The animal that laid the egg that the first chicken came out of was not a chicken! So, the egg came first.

Hmm.. after some working I discovered this topic here. Sorry, it's too far offtopic to be on an Indonesia website.

Basics of evolution can better be discussed in school or in a pub. This one gets a fresh and brand-new topic lock. Emoticon: Shiny
