What Came First The Chicken or The Egg?

Here is some miscellaneous info.

One level teaspoon consists of 80 drops.

If 1 cup = 240 ml.

1 Gallon = 15.772549 cups

If 1 jelly bean = 1.5 cm long and 1 cm wide

A 1 gallon pickling jar can take about 5000 jelly beans.

Some like to melt the candy down to see exactly how many can be put in.

The same with quarters. If you melt them there would be no air space between the items.

Chocolate dates back 3,500 years, to the Olmec civilization in Mexico.

New York was once known as “New Amsterdam”.

The name Harlem came from a Dutch city of Haarlem in the Netherlands.

Prostitution dates back 2,500 years back to Greece who worshipped the Goddess Venus

And temples were up kept by women charging men for servicing them.

Prostitution is mentioned in Ezekiel and Isaiah.

Brothels existed in 600 BCE

Homosexuality is talked about in the Bible since Noah’s time in Genesis:

"And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him."
What did Ham do? Did he just look at his naked father or was there something more to it than that?

Some commentators have suggested that Ham committed homosexual rape on his drunken father,

and that this was why Ham's descendants were eternally punished with slavery. 9:24

What came first, the chicken or the egg.?

Wikipedia helped here.

Evolutionary believers believe: Since DNA can be modified only before birth, a mutation must have taken place at conception or within an egg such that an animal similar to a chicken, but not a chicken, laid the first chicken egg. In this light, both the egg and the chicken evolved simultaneously from birds that were not chickens and did not lay chicken eggs but gradually became more and more like chickens over time.

Creationists believe: The Judeo-Christian story of creation describes God creating birds, and commanding them to multiply, but makes no direct mention of eggs.

Hindus: creation of birds (and other life forms) by God through superhuman beings is stated in Puranas and Dharmasastras. If one broadens one's definition of "an egg" to include non-chicken egg, the Hindu mythology also mentions a "cosmic egg" from which the universe as known to humans originated. In this sense this supreme egg comes before all creatures, including chickens and chicken eggs.

Buddhism = There is the belief of the wheel of time which regards time as cyclical and with repeating ages, as some other cultures such as mesoamerican (Aztecs, Mayan) and some native American Indians believe. Their idea of time gives a different answer to the question of "who is first" when combined with the concept of Eternal Return which is well known in the Western culture through the writings of Nietzsche. The assumption is that time is eternally repetitive and therefore, there is no "first" in eternity, there is no creation.

The answer then becomes: None is first. There is no "first" in a cyclical view of time.


Three old women are talking about their aches, pains and bodily dysfunctions.
One seventy-five year old woman says, "I have this problem. I wake up at seven a.m. and it takes me twenty minutes to pee."
An eighty year old woman says, "My case is worse. I get up at eight a.m. and I sit there and grunt and groan for half an hour before I finally have a bowel movement."
The ninety year old woman says, "At seven a.m. I pee like a horse and at eight I crap like a cow."
"So what's your problem?" asked the others.
"I don't wake up until nine."

Thanks for your miscellaneous information. Your list included many things I didn't know. However, as I get up in years, your joke hits too close to home.

'evolutionary believers' are called scientists and their theories are based on evidence (not always correct, 'tis true) and have nothing to do with beliefs - as opposed to creationists who have never presented any firm evidence whatsoever to support their beliefs.

i'm not sure i want to live to be 90
