Tug of War: Chicken or Egg?

After we were hit with the Bloggers’ Tag game a few days ago, DJ Matticus over at The Matticus Kingdom suggested maybe to do a tug of war online,so we started thinking and eventually reaching out to Rarasaur to help.  And here’s whats become of that! This is in response to The Matticus Kingdom’s first ever Tug of War.  Join into the fun by going to the link that I put and either write a post and link back or just leave him a comment to see.  And in a week (less now 6 days), the counters will decide which side wins.

The prompt: Which came first – the chicken or the egg?

Being on the road yesterday didn’t leave me much time to answer right away but I promised that I’d have one up today! Its going to be short and I could’ve argued both ways.  There was a phase in my nerdy  geeky life that I had pondered that question and almost did my public speaking topic on it until I thought it was ridiculous so I pushed it aside.

But now, I get to talk about that!

So my choice on one of the biggest paradox in the world. For me, my choice has to be egg! As much as I’d like to argue with DJ Matticus, I’ve always believed in the egg being first. I can hear you asking me why already? Egg has to be first.  It would be an evolution from fossilized rocks.  Some genes gets mixed in and voila, here it is! The egg hatched into the chicken.  Of course, that has to be totally by chance and eventually it would be extinct like most (or all) of the creatures from millions of years ago.  By then, the chickens were able to lay their eggs and they would hatch into more and more chicks and so continues the circle of life.

I can hear all your arguments and you are welcome to argue with me in the comments.  I’m going to go the agree to disagree path 😉 However, another time, if you do want, why not drop a comment or write a post to help your side win. Lets solve this paradox together in the first ever tug of war!

AND most importantly, a HUGE THANKS to DJ Matticus for starting this awesome blogging game of tug of war!

Happy Saturday everyone!  I’m out to do some shopping with my friends at Vaughn Mills! Never been..it should be fun 🙂

  1. So far it looks like the egg team is totally dominating. (Go us!) I’m sure you’ll have plenty of opportunities to argue with me in future iterations of the game: If the answer is 42, is the question “How many roads must a man walk down?” or “What is 6 x 7?” and If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to witness it, does it still make a sound, “Yes” or “No?” One of the responders came up with a couple other ideas yesterday too. We are going to solve all kinds of mysteries of the world with these tug-of-war games!
