What came first, egg or hen?

This is something which everybody discusses and is confusing. My son solved this very logically. He said the egg came first. Why ? Very carefully he makes me understand, they are not asking which came first, the hens egg or the hen. They are asking, egg or hen. Obviously there were eggs of dinosaurs which must have come ages ago, so the egg came first. Great logic. What say.

If you believe in the Bible, the chicken came first. "And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. And God said, 'Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven'." Genesis 1:19-20. Chickens are a type of fowl, so the Christian Bible says that chickens came first. If you have a different religion, you might have a different belief about the how the treasures of the earth came to be. In the science of evolution, both chickens and eggs came before man. Since both the birds and the eggs were on earth first, historians weren't around to record which came first.

I have got to disagree with your son. I believe the chicken came first and here is why. Whether God created the earth or not, evolution occured and is still occurring. I believe that the chicken evolved from another creature. Now, that creature lay an egg which contained the chicken. Many would say that this means the egg came first, but since the egg is a product of another creature, then that means that the chicken came first. Nadine.
