Quote# 80897

So here is a problem for you. Which came first, the chicken or the egg. Now considering that the egg needs to be kept warm. And the parents have to take car of it. You know that the chicken has to be first. Which poses a huge problem for evolution. Because if the first chicken was born without an egg. Then why did reproduction using eggs start? Because survival of the fittest doe not apply because eggs can be eaten by other animals. And natural selection does not make sense about eggs. Through what process were eggs determined the better way? And why would egg reproduction start anyway?

The answer is still ''raptors''.

Life came first. Then eggs evolved, and later, chickens. The end.

You do know that chickens are not the only egg laying creatures, right?

You know that fish and reptiles are both evolutionary precessors, and they both lay eggs. Reptiles even have shelled eggs that do okay on land.

Only a handfull of non-mammals give live birth. So it’s really live birth that’s the odd one out in the evolution game.

Birds are actually reptiles

Because before pouches and placentas, there was no other way to sexually reproduce, dipshit.

Why do you think bird and reptile eggs have a shell? Fish eggs don't have a shell. Amphibian and invertebrate eggs don't have a shell. Shells developed after the egg, as a means of protection.

Also, turtles don't sit on their eggs--they bury them in the sand and swim away. But that clutch of eggs never fails to hatch turtles.

Clearly someone has forgotten that creatures other than birds lay eggs.

does this guy really think alligators sit on their eggs?

For fucks sakes this might just be the stupidest argument I've ever heard against evolution and I've heard some dumb one in my time. The only way it could make any sense as a counter to evolution is if chickens were the first life form from which everything else evolved.

Through what process were eggs determined the better way? And why would egg reproduction start anyway?

It's called development. As creatures became more complex they could no longer just split off as a fully-formed copy of their parent as bacteria do. More primitive eggs had the bare essentials to allow for development and even now fish and amphibian eggs basically just have a membrane to protect its cargo. Eventually these eggs were laid with better and better methods of protection while they developed until eventually we got shelled eggs.

Not all eggs are kept warm by their parents. Fishes, for example, just lay their eggs in the water, and swim away.
Evolution doesn't work like that; it's a gradual change, not something just popping into existence. Popping = Creation.

You do know that humans have "eggs" to, right? The sack in which the embryo/fetus is growing is a very soft, shell-less egg.

If eggs are such a shoddy product, then why did God create them, then?
Evolution just forms good-enough things, not perfect ones. What's the excuse of your God?

Here's a problem for you. Did Adam have a belly button? Because if he didn't then he was imperfect. But if he did, then who was the mother that the umbilicus attached to?

Also who made god? And what happened to the heat of reentry of the water canopy during the flood?

Yeah, except for the hundrds of thousands of reptiles and other birds that lay eggs numbnutz.

Since chickens were HAND BRED from another type of bird, the answer is clearly the egg.

Except that eggs predate chickens by a couple hundred million years.

You're seriously using a child's argument to try to discredit evolution?

Dinosaurs laid eggs, and chickens evolved from them (as well as all other birds).

The goo inside the egg came first.

Of course it was. Haven't you seen the Family Guy episode where Jeanie "blinks" the animals into existence?!

Ayayayay... the inanity. The inanity of this website knows no bounds. Your basic premise is wrong, as the egg came first. We know this because all birds lay eggs, not just chickens. Then, reptiles, amphibians, and fish lay eggs, as do insects and other invertebrates. Even mammals have egg cells; they are merely viviparous. Back when there was not much difference between unicellular and multicellular organisms, the egg just split off and was fertilized outside the womb or eggshell and grew into a new organism. As organisms got more complicated, the egg was fertilized inside the mother's body, and only later did eggs start to be laid... but not in mammals. This isn't so hard to understand.

"Because if the first chicken was born without an egg."

LMAO No words! ROFL

You are one dumb motherfucker if you think that this is a serious question for anyone with an education. Hard shelled eggs evolved for land creatures. You do know that all life originated in the seas, right? Fish eggs don't get sat on by the parent, fuckwit!

I really like how he has no clue on how birds evolved.

4/29/2011 9:11:11 AM

gay diest

I blame poor wording for the misunderstanding

the question should be

which came first, the chicken or the chicken egg?

as in... is it a chicken egg if it has a chicken in it? (egg came first) or is it only a chicken egg if a chicken has laid it (chicken came first)

its a pondering over taxonomy not evolution. stupid fundies
