It's the egg

There's no real question, right? It's the egg first, then the chicken. As I understand things, there was once some non-chicken bird, the proto-chicken, and one day either the mother or the father produced an egg or sperm that had a random genetic difference from it's own DNA. Egg gets fertilized and out pops the first baby chick. Baby chick gets some action when older and on it goes. The end. Do I have that right?

I'm impressed. An age-old problem solved in one short paragraph.

I've always thought so. And no one has articulated a decent counter-argument.

Well... not if you believe the Bible.

So, then, Mister Wisdom, which came first: the belly button or the baby?

Sarah Laurenson said...

Right, Pete. Did Adam and Eve have belly buttons?
