a brief history of the chicken

Updated on April 16, 2011

Which came first?

The age old question.

I noticed recently, there was a question asked in the forums. "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" To me, the answer is so obvious, it's not funny. However the self same answer would be considered funny by many.

To the Creationist, (me) the answer is....."Chicken", of course!

To the Evolutionist, well, it's not so clear cut. So, for the uneducated ones out there, I presented the following summary. It is entitled, "a brief history of the chicken". It goes like this:

Let me clarify.

First came the "primordial soup"

Then came a virus.

Evolution started.

Amoeba came next.

It became an invertebrate.

Then came the vertebrate,

(Fish and the like, you know).

These eventually crawled out onto dry land and became reptiles,

(some of which adapted to bird like creatures.)

These became chickens, which laid the eggs,

And there you have it.

A brief history of a chicken.

I have been often times accused of not understanding the "real" Theory of Evolution, of being Ignorant and uneducated. But, having given this brief history of the evolutionary explanation of the chicken, to my surprise, and amazement, a proponent of evolutionary theory, AND an Atheist (all in one person) actually commended me for my summary.

He said, and I quote, "That is a pretty good summary. "!

Go figure?

Maybe I'm not so uneducated after all. :)

If you are curious to see the thread that inspired this Hub, here's the link.

BTW, God created the chicken, with it's ability to lay eggs. Not that difficult a concept, really. But then evolutionists have to complicate things to make it look like an intelligent option. Oh well, maybe this hub will go some way to educate them. (Laughing Out Loud, I am).

      I think it's even funnier that down in your neck of the world's woods, you have an animal that is a mammal yet has a duck bill, lays eggs and has poison claws on its hind feet. What other mammal has poison for a self defense mechanism? Guess we have to classify that as a bird/mammal/reptile animal. Oh man I am so confused! ;-)

      Thanks for the funny hub. God bless you.

      Hahahahaha, this is a great view on evolution! "primordial soup" ...I never thought about the ocean like that. This is a great hub, I might just have to share that middle part with my biology teacher, he'll get a good laugh out of it. Great hub, voted UP and funny :)
