On Solving Questions

Science and religion approach humanity’s puzzles differently. Take the classic chicken or the egg dilemma. Science answers the egg; religion presupposes chicken.

I just thought of that randomly while in the shower (weird, I know) and wanted to share. Here’s a CNN article I found from 2006 which backs me up a bit.


Put simply, the reason is down to the fact that genetic material does not change during an animal’s life.

Therefore the first bird that evolved into what we would call a chicken, probably in prehistoric times, must have first existed as an embryo inside an egg.
By the way, religion (at least Christianity and Judaism) needs to presume the chicken because why would a God just make an egg first? Also, in Genesis it says that He created fowls not eggs.
