Hai guise,

So yeah I only have a dutch source, but I'll translate it for you guys.

Quote by Source

Scientists from Great-Brittain think they may have found a solution for the big question: what was there first? The chicken or the egg? They know for sure now. "We assumed for a long time that the egg existed first, but now we have scientific proof from which emerges that the chicken actually existed first," Says Colin Freeman from the Sheffield University.

British scientists have come to this conclusion through examination of the egg's shell. By using software, they found the exact "assembly" (don't know a better word) and the way of forming of the eggs. This brought them to the conclusion that eggs can only be created by taking a certain proteïn that only exists in the ovary of chicken. Eggs therefore have to be formed inside the chicken, and therefore the chicken existed first.

The protein OC-17 speeds up the forming of the eggshell.


Thoughts?

Isn't that kinda common sense?

Ever being the skeptic, I say it proves nothing.

Makes sense.

Doesn't really matter to me. I'm still thankful for the chickens for letting me eat them.

I though the chicken was the mutation of some animal / 2 other animals? Therefor, there was chicken before the egg?

Seems more logic to me...

That's ridiculous, that protein maybe only exists in chickens nowadays, but how do they know there weren't birds with that protein in them before?
I think egg came first

Great! At least one problem solved today.

Thanks.

Impossible.

The egg came first, and due to genetic mutations and evolution, a chicken was born from it. No matter how you look at it, a chicken egg is an egg with a chicken in it, so the egg came first.
#11
Next question. Who came first. Chickens or KFC?

Well could you imagine some random egg existing? No the chicken came through evolution.

as far as I was aware dinosaurs laid eggs, and they were stomping around the ever green fields before Mr Clucking McClucks.

So the Egg did come before the chicken.

This doesn't prove the chicken came first, which it didn't. The answer is, "the chicken's chicken-like-ancestor." Sure the protein is only found in chicken ovaries today, but that is because the chicken-like-ancestor doesn't exist anymore.

Yes of course.

The chicken egg had to have come before the egg; whatever creature laid the egg would simply be the step before the chicken in the evolutionary process.

Also, I'm a vegetarian; I think I'll just stick with eggs anyways.

Why would they even bother to try to solve this "problem"? Last time I checked it was a figure of speech. Before you know it they'll be scientifically trying to prove if a tree falling makes a sound if no one is around to hear it.
For people actually wondering if the chicken came before the egg, it did not. T-Rexes were laying eggs billions of years ago, way before they evolved into chickens.

BIOLOGY LESSON:

DNA is the code that makes it possible to make proteins and stuff in your cells.
Bird mates, and it gets an fertilised egg.
egg happens to have a DNA 'mistake', which allows him to make proteins, unique to chickens
egg comes out, chicken mates
chicken makes egg with chicken proteins

Obviously the chicken came first. It's basic biology. I doubt the egg came first. It's easier to get a chicken off than an egg.
