Genesis 1:20-23 – Which Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?

20Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.” 21God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 22God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

A little background here:

A little while ago my mom was studying Genesis.  As she was studying it hit her…God answered the age old question of, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?”

And she told me about it and I got it and thought it was way cool.

Well, this morning my bible reading plan included the first 3 Chapters of Genesis and guess what popped in my head through the entire reading?

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

LOL  So THANK YOU MOM!  It totally stuck in my head like a bad song  ~laughs~

Now, every time I read Genesis, I’m shouting in my head…THE CHICKEN CAME FIRST!


And this was after a heart-felt prayer to God for wisdom and understanding during my reading.

Maybe the best wisdom is really that simple…ask a seemingly impossible to answer question and then just go read your Bible.  The answer is there.

Amen and amen~

    Well, it just seemed logical if you consider that God created the creatures and birds and fish. He didn’t say, “I think I’ll create an egg and see what happens” now, did he?
