Chicken and the Egg — the classic question for all time, “Who came first the chicken or the egg?”
This the age old question from the beginning of time. How can the egg have come first if the chicken wasn’t there to produce the egg? It’s a paradox. Who’s right and who wrong? Is this a Left or Right issue? Don’t ask me, I’m a little nutsy! I am the BerZerktoad, you know. This is definitely not intended to be political. Guaranteed some”Karen” will be crying about it sooner or later– guaranteed. Just give them the chance. Is this a philosophical question or one of science? Don’t ask government, they do not follow the science. N matter what they claim, tragically it’s all political for them. Follow the money and the votes. Damn, we’ve gotten off topic, Harumph! “I didn’t get a Harumph out of you.” — LOL
Anyway, who gets to decide the issue? It is a metaphoric adjective describing situations where its not clear which of two events should be considered the cause and which should be considered the effect. We’re now going to get deep on this one. 🙂
Although the question is typically used metaphorically, revolutionary biology provides literal answers made possible by Darwinian principle that species evolved over time and thus the chickens had ancestors that were not chickens. Similar views were expressed by the Greek philosopher Anaximander when addressing this paradox. Are you really going to challenge me on this one? Go for it.
What I’ve done is created a sarcastic, artistic cartoonish T-shirt that amplifies this very question, in a slightly risque’ and salacious manner. Yeah- yeah- yeah- it’s a little sexual, so what? Sex sells! Prove me wrong, you know you can’t. Name one thing that sex doesn’t sell better, just one. Hell, sex sells sex better. See the Porn industry for proof. $20 billion a year industry. Not bad for boobs, butts etc.
