I believe it is the rooster. The rooster cock-a-doodle-doo first before we actually fry an egg before breakfast so the rooster came first.

But the rooster came from an egg, which was laid by a hen, which came from an egg, which was laid by a hen, which came from an egg, which was laid by a hen, which came from an egg, which was laid by a hen, which came from an egg, which was laid by a hen, which came from an egg, which was laid by a hen, which came from an egg, which was laid by a hen, which came from an egg, which was laid by a hen, which came from an egg, which was laid by a hen, which came from an egg.....and so on, etc. etc.

Or we could just make it easy and say that God created the rooster and the hen and just be done with it, but then somebody's going to ask "who created God".

I wonder if this question will ever really be answered lol.

No one created God, if someone did, the question about who created the creator will never end. I think that is a characteristic of a divine being - the first in everything in existence.

If we are to base the bible for a conclusion...

Genesis 1:20-25

Quote:
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creeps upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good... 31 And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.


It is very clear that God created a living creature. It did not say God created eggs of every living creature. Which narrows our choices down to either the rooster or hen.

How do you know rooster wasn't here before the egg that hatched the chicken ?

Something had to impregnate whatever laid that first chicken bearing egg.

Genetically, the egg had to come first.

If the theory of evolution holds, then there must have been some species before the chicken that continued to procreate until one day, an egg is fertilized but a mutation occurs in one or more of the chromosomes, changing the individual enough that it becomes a separate species. This egg thus contains the very first chicken embryo, and thus, the egg came before the chicken.

Mystery solved.

Just out of curiosity, does a chicken have more rib bones than a rooster ?

I believe a rooster has more rib bones compared to a hen.
Hens need more space inside for the eggs.

Why does it matter? We'll never know, and if neither had come and we had no chickens or eggs we wouldn't know any different. Whether if was the big bang or an all mighty spirit of some sort, that was waaaaay before any of us existed. And we're mere mortals, something as simple as a bump on the head can kill us, so lets just enjoy life while we can and be care free.

The universe is infinitely large and there is no all-encompassing beginning or end. That which exists around us has always existed and always will.

At any given moment everything that can exist, does, somewhere.

The only things that have a beginning or an end are the ideas we come up with.

Believing this is what makes me wake up every morning. :)

Now don't try to rule the roost and make people participate - we don't want to ruffle any feathers.

Something about a rooster, the reason I wake up every morning, and full circles.

I'll figure it out tomorrow, it's getting late and I don't want to have anymore sleep deprivation induced realistic dreams of people saying "boo" in my ear that are nothing more than the grinding sound of the cotton in my pillow when my head moves a little.

Took me a week to figure that one out and rule out my apartment being haunted. :D

I had a dream I was eating a steak once and I woke up and my pillow was covered in saliva. I think I might have been chewing on my pillow.

My most recent had to be because of the show TrueBlood. I dreamed my two dachshunds could shape shift into people who were trying to kidnap my wife and me. I woke up and walked into the kitchen and they were both just sitting in the kitchen staring right at me. Took me a few minutes to wake up and get over that one.

I woke up shivering one night and it was because all my blankets were in a pile at the head of my bed. I still can't figure out why I pulled them all up like that.....

The ulimate chicken of death, which is an eternal astral wanderer, and nocturnal, is well known for this kind of behavior.

Something to do with the days when everyone's pillow and mattress were stuffed with feathers.
