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.

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.

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

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.

That doesn't answer the question at all. The question is obviously wether the CHICKEN egg was first, or the chicken. Of course there were eggs before chicken even existed, but no chicken eggs. Is a chicken egg an egg that is layed by a chicken or is a chicken egg an that a chicken hatches from?

You might say obviously the egg the chicken hatches from, but does that make unfertilized eggs not chicken eggs?
Following from this, the first egg a a chicken was born from actually was not a chicken egg, but another birds egg that was the ancestor of the chicken. Then a chicken hatched which in turn layed the first chicken egg.

And thus we conclude that the chicken actually was first and not the egg

son is you retarded?

the egg came first because the egg the DNA that defined what a chicken was and it was laid out by whatever bird was not considered a chicken yet through the process of evolution

>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 always understood the question as "which came first: a chicken fetus or the egg in which the chicken fetus develops"
User avatar #75 - Vandeekree (08/22/2014) [+] (10 replies)
Lets say I give you an egg that came out of a chicken. But then a frog hatches from the egg. Would you say it was a chicken egg with a frog in it or a frog egg? I think most would say "Holy cow, a frog came out of that chicken egg!" Thus making it a chicken egg.

That means that the egg he mentioned would be a "pre-chicken egg" with a chicken in it. Thus the chicken came first, and it came out of a pre-chicken egg.

can't have an egg before a chicken. and this science man is stupid cuz now we'll just ask where the bird came from. evolution is not the truth. get over it.
User avatar #50 to #33 - gcloud (08/21/2014) [-]
well its common place to say birds evolved from dinosaurs similar to Velociraptors, which also layed eggs
