If you believe in God's creation, the most probable thing is that He created the hen, not the egg.
If you believe in evolution, the most probable thing is that the tadpole evolved into a hen, not into an egg.
Excellent answer! I've always said if you believe in creation then you're aware that God created Adam and Eve as adults. It would stand to reason he'd do the same with all living creatures. Evolution has several options! :-)
Well, your answer is quite good. But just think about, a man is born from the womb of a women. So, it must be a women first to create another human. So, isn't it considerable to keep the birth of hen first.
"The theory of evolution states that species change over time via mutation and sexual reproduction. Since DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) can be modified only before birth, it can be argued that a mutation must have taken place at conception or within an egg such that a creature 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. Hence, in this light, both the chicken and the structure of its egg evolved simultaneously from birds that, while not of the same exact species, gradually became more and more like present-day chickens over time.
However, no one mutation in one individual can be considered as constituting a new species. A speciation event involves the separation of one population from its parent population, so that interbreeding ceases; this is the process whereby domesticated animals are genetically separated from their wild forebears. The whole separated group can then be recognized as a new species."
^^Didn't feel like typing it all so I copied it from wiki. Nevertheless, it is the answer.
It is not up for a debate with religion. This is how all species evolved....including documented evolution of a wolf-like precursor to domestic dogs.
