    I think we pretty much decided it was the egg before the chicken. So, the seed came before the apple. But how did the egg and the seed form?????

    Wondering

    (Actually,I would say, in the realm of science there is no answer whatsoever.)

      A flowering App tree was pollinated by a bee who had recently visited a Ple tree and created appples , which developed with apple seeds, so the apples came first.
      (Before this cross pollination, App trees only produced Apps.)

        Once there was an apple tree
        With blossoms full of bees,
        Gathering nectar for the queen
        Pollen on their knees.

        The bees then flew to orchards far
        To pollinate more trees.
        For blossoms do form apples
        Which are full of apple seeds.

        Glowing globes upon the trees
        Ripening there 'til red
        Soon fell down upon the ground
        No longer round and red.

        Apple seeds so hard and strong   
        Small and full of life
        Sprouted and grew there in the dirt
        withstanding nature's strife.

        In another words:
        The pollinated blossoms
        Form the apples
        Which fall to the ground
        Which contain the seeds
        Which form the sprouts
        Which grow into apple trees.

        Once there was an apple tree
        On a distant hill
        How did that first seed get there?
        We are wondering still.

      Apples come from trees and the seeds come from apples.

      The fertilized BLOSSOM produced the apple AND the seed! if no bee, no fertilization?
      So what was first? The blossom or the tree?
      And in the case of an egg!!! Roosters AND chickens had to have sex first!
      Oh, this gets complicated.

      In the case of a star: hydrogen AND helium!

      Yin and Yang.
      A bee is yang and a flower is yin.
      … something like that.
      what?  The force of Yin AND Yang is not scientific?

      What was first:
      the human egg or the human sperm?
      the male or the female?
      the human or the egg?
      the human or the sperm?

      Everyone who wants to know, would know what 'came first' since it is written "and God said, let  the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and the fruit trees yielding fruit each according to it kind... and God said, let the earth bring forth moving creatures according to their kinds..."

        God just put forth vegetation? How about all the vegetation the dinosaurs roamed in? What was first: The Garden of Eden or The Land Before Time / Era of Dinosaurs?

        What was first: The Garden of Eden or Adam? Did God make Adam first and then give him a garden or did he create the garden and then place Adam in it?

        What was first: birds or trees? Trees came into being for birds which needed a place to build nests, I suppose. Or were the trees first and needed a way to continue its species, via bird droppings containing seeds? (Apples were originally for birds to eat, in that case)

        QuickSand? Michael?

          One day, one day Kathryn, maybe soon I will have more time and more / all the  answers (hope we end up at the same place) to share.

    Johnny. The answer is Johnny.

      Kathryn L Hillposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, I concur. The male or yang force is first. The yang force is the initiator of all of creation. What! This does not sound scientific?

    the chicken or the rooster?

      Roosters are chickens, too. (the girl chickens are hens).

    What came first: the apple or the seed?
    The bee.
    What, oh what, creates a bee?
    Two bees:
    The queen and the male bee.
    But, obviously, the male bee came first.

  5. Kathryn L Hill profile image78
    Kathryn L Hillposted 2 years ago

    So which came first, the male chicken / rooster or the female chicken?
    The male chicken / rooster, I would imagine.

    The answer is not Johnny but Adam, unscientifically speaking ...
    or is it (scientific)?

    Well Adam brought a chicken along with him. The chicken laid two eggs. Both hatched. One of them was a rooster, the other was not. Meanwhile Adam was chewing an apple that he had had with him before his departure from his celestial abode. He spat out the seeds.

    Well, that explains everything. Period ... smile

      I concur.  The male and female chickens and the apple seeds came from Adam's celestial abode.
      And thats the scientific truth.
      Thank You, quicksand.

        You're most welcome!
        If there is any other thing similar to this one that's puzzling you, to which you may need a "scientific" analysis and an inference, remember QuickSand would be delighted to be at your service!
