The theory of evolution states that species change over time via mutation and sexual reproduction. DNA can be modified only before birth, a mutation must have taken place at conception or within an egg such that an animal similar to a chicken, but not a chicken, laid the first chicken eggs. These eggs then hatched into chickens that inbred to produce a living population. Both the chicken and the egg evolved simultaneously from birds that, while not of the same exact species, gradually became more and more like present-day chickens over time.

 The real question ignored by philosophers is , did those birds taste like chicken?

off course - first was an order to make it

what was first made of the order - it's up to production department, and availability of the parts

birds evolve from reptiles, all birds lay eggs. Silly question. Also who incubates the egg if it comes first?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
