Which Came First? The Chicken or the Egg?

Such a seemingly innocent question!  And, perplexing! Do  you have the answer?

I think I'll just go with Aristotle's viewpoint (from Wikipedia):

Aristotle (384–322 BC) was puzzled by the idea that there could be a first bird or egg and concluded that both the bird and egg must have always existed:
If there has been a first man he must have been born without father or mother – which is repugnant to nature. For there could not have been a first egg to give a beginning to birds, or there should have been a first bird which gave a beginning to eggs; for a bird comes from an egg. [2]

Come join us every week, as a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

Post Script: I was 'missing in action ' last week, for sure. My Daddy passed away on April 3rd at 11:05 PST. He had made a decision to stop dialysis. Oh, how I will miss heart aches to lose him, but he was truly ready to go. God Bless My Daddy.

This hen seems to not know the answer...but it seems to be looking for that nugget of knowledge as it walks around the coop. It looks high and low and seems confused as to why the chicken/egg conundrum exists and what the answer is. Kind of like me :)

It depends on which chicken you're talking about, doesn't it? ;)

I've always liked chickens - and eggs.
How about if there was first a mixture of an egg and bird? :)
Your dad has a peace now...

Not me either, Ralph? Couldn't think which is which but for sure, I know that shadows are for real.
That matters for me.

Happy Sunday, girl.

No shadow without light. Perhaps they where starting the same time.

Delicious sequence, nice photos! A difficult question to answer!


I love the chicken images [I grew up with both grandparents as farmers]

And the question?!! --- dunno, but I like the quote you chose to share.
