Unanswerable Questions (or are they)

1. What came first the chicken or the egg?

2. Why does the Easter bunny carry eggs? Rabbits donít even lay eggs

Of course it's the egg. That's how this whole thing works.

And it's not like evolution ends with us now. Eventually, millions of years from now, modern humans and modern chickens will be long extinct, but something will still be laying eggs.

How was the egg incubated then if there was no hen sitting on it? The egg could never hatch or survive on it’s own. The chicken came first. But as different bacteria in regional microcosms, through adaptability and survivability, some evolved into chickens.

Edit: what I mean by chicken, was it was something else down the line through evolution and as humans interfered in not only their natural habitat, but also them, we domesticated the original genus (Like wolves to dogs) and that’s how we got chickens.

PPM - I agree. I've always felt that the domestication of wolves to dogs was behind the evolution of the chicken.

Chickens were domesticated from junglefowl birds in Asian countries.

Imo the chicken sandwiches at Chick-Fil-A are far superior in taste and quality to the bland chicken sandwiches at McDonalds.

Actuality and Potentiality are constrasting terms for that which has form, in Aristotle‘s sense, and that which has merely the possibility of having form.

Actuality (energeia in Greek) is that mode of being in which a thing can bring other things about or be brought about by them, the realm of events and facts.

By contrast, potentiality (dynamis in Greek) is not a mode in which a thing exists, but rather the power to effect change, the capacity of a thing to make transitions into different states.

Therefore it stands to reason that since the chicken is an actual chicken, and the egg is a potential chicken, that the chicken indeed came first.

ot-for some reason even though it doesn't change my strong religious beliefs and thinking, this chicken and egg issue reminds me of another matter which atheists many times raise.
They argue that if God did indeed create the Universe, then who created God?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?
