Words of Comfort: Common Myths

In an article called “11 You Thought Were True” Madeleine Crum wrote, 

“As the geneticist J. B. S. Haldane remarked, The most frequently asked question is: 'Which came first, the chicken or the egg?' The fact that it is still asked proves either that many people have never been taught the theory of evolution or that they don't believe it.’ With that in mind, the answer becomes obvious. Birds evolved from reptiles, so the first bird must have come out of an egg--laid by a reptile.”

So Crum thinks she has solved the dilemma of which came first, by hatching another “mystery.” It now becomes “Which came first, the reptile or the egg?”

Such are musings of the fertile imaginations of those who refuse to believe that God made a chicken (and a rooster), the female laid a fertilized egg, that reproduced after its own kind.
