For many philosophers the question “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” it is the ultimate conundrum. The answer is not known, they suppose, because it is a case of circular cause and consequence. Questions like that are impossible to answer because the consequence of the phenomenon is claimed to be its root cause. The same thing exists in science and engineering in which a parameter is required to calculate that parameter itself. Can’t happen, right? Wrong.
The creation of the world was not a scientific event, it was a supernatural event. God created it out of His mind and His power and His voice. Who can quantify that? But creationists know that the chicken came first. (Gen 1:20-21). Day 5. End of discussion.

But that was not the end of discussion for generations of scientists who deny the bible and seek man-satisfactory answers. Well, they found their answer, and the answer is…the chicken! Circular, isn’t it?
The chicken came first, scientists prove
“But now they believe they have cracked the conundrum of what came first: the chicken or the egg. British researchers say the chicken must have come first as the formation of eggs is only possible thanks to a protein found in the chicken’s ovaries. ‘It had long been suspected that the egg came first but now we have the scientific proof that shows that in fact the chicken came first,’ said Dr Colin Freeman, from Sheffield University, who worked with counterparts at Warwick University.”
It’s nice when people seek knowledge about our world through science, but God does not need scientists to prove or disprove Him. He exists and He is sovereign, even over the ‘natural laws’ that scientists say govern the world. After all, He appeared through walls, particulate matter being of no consequence to Him. He walked on water, gravity being of no consequence to him. He fermented wine, time having no consequence to Him. And the best part of all is that His believers will be the same as Him after we are raptured/resurrected. We also will be able to travel through hyper-dimensions, walk on water, appear at will here and there. In the crowning gift of the Supreme God to His people, and in a final incidence of circular cause and consequence, creationists will be the ultimate scientists, knowing the answers to all things, having the power to explore universes, and a possessing mind capable of understanding it. The real answer to what came first is not that the chicken and the egg came first, but that God came first. He is also last. He is the first and the last, the Alpha and the Omega, and He created a universe with man in it, and set us free to explore the tiny questions of the day like chickens and eggs, as well as large ones, like “How much does He love me?” Answer: a LOT!
