Realistically it had to have been a chicken. If it wasn't a chicken that laid the egg, then it was not a chicken egg, hence a chicken could not hatch from it.

evolution, baby.

Or you know laid by a dinosaur.

I'm pretty sure that most of the surviving dinosaurs evolved into modern birds.

there's a reason that mammals don't have the same aesthetic traits as dinosaurs

Who hasn't thought of that answer on their own by now?


Unpopular Opinion: Black Science man annoys the **** out of me. Maybe he is smart but people have orgasms over some pretty simple **** . Like the time he mentioned the big bang theory on colbert report

You're all wrong, the rooster came first.

But you're not Black Science man.
In all fairness I assume many people, you, me, tens of thousands in every country with real science taught in their schools, realize that how evolution works.

Chickens came first, because who would have laid the egg?

Logic isn't your friend, is it?
User avatar #31 - TigerMann (08/21/2014) [+] (11 replies)
Which came first? The egg or the creature that laid it?
Your move, Black Science Man.

once i understood evolution i always said the egg. i was called stupid for years.

>Implying that the genetics changes produced from one generation to the next are big enough to produce a species break.
The species definition is broken, and people's view on evolution is way too simplistic (specially how it regards -actually non existant- especies). Including this guy's.
TL;DR: This is not the answer to the question either.
User avatar #112 to #101 - cheatman (08/22/2014) [-]
It technically is, since the simple fact of the matter is this; it doesn't matter what kind of bird laid the first egg, there were eggs around long before there were chickens.

The theory of evolution only really states that one entity, over any given period of time, undergoes changes in order to adept to their environment and living conditions, if we use this theory, that would mean that a bird, not quite a chicken yet, laid an egg that then hatched a chicken, meaning the chicken egg came before the chicken.

Without the theory, it only ever boils down to what appeared first, the egg or the chicken. Well, fossil records show there were many eggs back 100 million years ago, but no chickens. Therefore, the egg came first.

So I just finished watching Cosmos: A Space Odyssey and I just wanna know...

Has anyone else noticed that when he talks he sounds like he's ready?
Like... Barry White ready?
Like he's making love to his words or something. Turned on by science and about to jizz.... "Come with me..."

Maybe its just me but I swear I felt a little violated and yet well educated after I finished watching it.
User avatar #71 - sewallman ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
I too always answer "The egg" because the egg is a mixture of two different birds that are no longer technically defined as a modern chicken. Genetic mutations always have taken place and so has evolution.

In other words, I'm no fun at parties.
User avatar #66 - tastycrisps (08/21/2014) [-]
Depends on your definition of a chicken egg.

If a chicken egg is an egg laid by a chicken than the chicken came first.

If a chicken egg is an egg that contains a chicken, the egg came first.

Which Came First - The Chicken or the Egg?

I find Neil deGrasse Tyson to be snarky and annoying.
User avatar #120 - xdiabolicx (08/22/2014) [+] (5 replies)
So what laid the egg that THAT bird came from? Or is the theory that the evolution of birds baring children NOT via eggs suddenly took a turn when some female bird shot an egg out of her and was like wtf is going on and then the evolutionary chain of the chicken was created?

but that doesn't make any ssensai.

I thought the first egg would've come from a snake or reptile-like creature.
User avatar #42 - ChewyConor (08/21/2014) [+] (7 replies)
Depends how you define the egg.
We'll assume were talking about chicken-eggs not just eggs in general (which obviously came first).
Is an egg a chicken-egg because it contains a chicken or because it was laid by a chicken?
Did a nonchicken lay a nonchicken-egg which contained the first chicken, or did a nonchicken lay the first chicken-egg?
