It only goes to reason the egg came first being chickens are born from eggs. A mutated fertilization of some fowl creature spawned the first "chicken egg". The egg was then laid and incubated to birth the first chicken. It only makes sense how evelotution is supposed to work. Just like the regular cat that gave birth to the 4 eared cat. It's all by mutation. So since chickens birth via laid eggs, and birds in general lay eggs... The non chicken layed the mutated "chicken" egg prior to there ever being a chicken.
How is that argument dismissed?
I do not know how one can reason the chicken came before the egg being that all fowl lay eggs and come from eggs.
Ahhh yes, this could indeed essentially negate that argument. However, as far as I know, only microorganisms asexually reproduce. So I think it would be very difficult to reason a much more complex being on our planet reproducing asexually thus creating the possibility of the chicken before the egg.
Thank you, I would never have thought of this angle. Very kewl.
