the chicken, or the egg?

Well, it turns out that neither is the answer. It was in fact, a Tyrannosaurus rex.

EDIT: I didn't inend this thread to be a debate on the subject, simply to point people at the news story.

This thread for that debate methinks!

Some geneticist was on the radio the other week & said it was the chicken.

I still say the egg.

Or the other way around. I forget


Depends on whether you define a 'chickens egg' as the egg the first chicken came in, or the egg the first chicken layed.

and where did that Tyrannosaurus rex come from? An egg.

I know there was an old thread debating this a while back. I made a new thread to announce this interesting piece of news, not to start the debate again. If I'd wanted a debate, I would have certainly put in a poll.

-cries- so what if a trex came before a chicken or an egg? there were things before the trex!

Chicken blah blah evolution blah yadda yadda

Effort explaining and we've all heard it before, but yeah. The chicken.

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

Quote by Unforgotten
it was a egg, two different species mated with each other which produced an egg.
well thats what i got told


Thats like the retarded kids explanation, so they shut up.

I think a "bird" laid an egg. And this bird was 0.0005% of being officially a chicken, however the bird inside that EGG was officially a chicken. I can't imagine what possible argument there could be. I think its very unlikely that the bird somehow evolved in its lifetime, or that somehow the chicken was born differently, and during its lifetime evolved into laying eggs.

duh.

havent we always known this?

TS you statement doesn't make any sense and the article is irrelevant to the argument.
#21
You have essentially changed the argument to "What came first, the Tyranosaurus Rex or the egg?". Respect.

I'm sure most of you know ( ) that "Raptor" is a class of bird.

Hahaha I love the bizarreness of it! Imagine two people arguing ''no, it was the chicken!'' ''no, 'twas the egg i say!'' and then bam! ''It was the T-rex motherf*cker!'' It all suddenly seems so clear

Depends if the egg in the question is a chicken egg or just an egg... either way the egg came before the chicken and if it's just eggs in general then it came before the t - rex, but who gives a damn?

Q. Which came first

A. You.

It depends on your religion. If your a Christian, God created all the animals and when he created chickens he probably made chickens, not eggs.

If your an atheist you would believe that whatever laid the egg wasn't a chicken.
#29
Consider my aforementioned statement.

There's a theory that says an EGG-SHAPED object errupted and made the universe (similar to big bang without the retraction part)


So if it's true....

God is an Egg.

ok, so the new question to rock the ages:


Which came first, the T-Rex, or the egg?


and a joke covering that.

Chicken and egg are in bed. Egg lights a cigarette. Chicken rolls over and says: "guess we answered that question."

Yeah, the whole chicken and the egg thing is completely redundant, since chickens evolved from some form of dinosaur...

The real answer can come in the form of a question:

Who the **** cares?
#32
it's so frigging awesome how they can extract proteins from a 65 million year old dinosaur bone and show how they're related to birds. Science, man...

But if it doesn't lay eggs it's not a chicken, so it's still the egg.

well, something would have evolved into a chicken.

and the chicken must have hatchedfrom whatever it previously was. so the egg.

Yeah, but dinosaurs lay eggs.

Well, a t-rex evolved from earlier t-rexes, so still the t-rex.
