Here’s an age-old question the Philosophers and Experts should know, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Scientists cracked the puzzle after discovering that the formation of eggs is possible only to a protein found in chicken’s ovaries. That means eggs have to be formed in chickens first.
It had long been suspected that the egg came first, but now we have the scientific proof which shows that in fact the chicken came first. Sheffield University’s Dr Colin Freeman said the protein — called ovocledidin-17 (OC-17) — speeds up the development of the shell. Researchers from Sheffield and Warwick universities in England laid out their findings in the paper “Structural Control of Crystal Nuclei by an Eggshell Protein. Link
And the stupid answer to the question as to which came first are: The egg because God created Adam first before Eve who has no egg but on the contrary Adam has no egg cell. The chicken because C came first before the E in the Alphabet. 😦
The scientific proof is however very hard to comprehend by those not knowledgeable to Science but the Scripture has a direct and clear answer about fowl creation.
Gen 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
God created the earth first for the living creature to dwell and multiply.
Gen 1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
It is a question similar to: Who came first, the mother or the fetus in the ovary?
Jer 1:5 Before I formed thee in embryo I knew thee; and before thou wast born I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet to the nations.
Gen 28:3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;
If we come to a common thinking that chicken came first before the egg, which came first then, the Rooster or the Hen? Is the process of creation same with man? Adam was created from the dust of the earth and Eve was taken out from Adam’s rib, performed by God as the first Surgeon and Anesthesiologist.
Gen 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.
To think soberly, starting from its creation, In what way do fowl multiply in number? It is the male & female fowl that mate withot the egg. The egg is just a product of the mating process. 🙂 Between humans, it is the fetus in woman’s ovary.
Rom 12:3 For through the grace given to me, I say, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
2 Cor 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
O how deep is the wealth of the wisdom and knowledge of God! no one is able to make discovery of his decisions, and his ways may not be searched out.
Eccles 8:17 Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man may labor to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yes further; though a wise man thinketh to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it.
