One Question Friday












Every Friday I’m going to ask a question. The questions I choose might be ambiguous on purpose. The goal is to have you answer the question according to your beliefs, where you’re at in life or a circumstance that might have recently impacted you. The only thing I ask is that you provide an explanation for why you answered the way you did.


It is my hope to understand you better through this and also to gain a greater understanding of humanity and how people make decisions.








And now you get to answer the one question I know you’ve wanted me to ask since I began One Question Fridays…








Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

  2. In some way, shape, or form, I cast my vote for the egg!

  3. Since man was created first, not child, I'm thinking chicken was too, so that she could raise her little chick and let them multiply. That's my theory, anyway!

  4. hahaha!! I can't believe this is the question! Hilarious! Age old debate... well, I guess I will have to make a decision. I am going to go with the chicken. It matches what I think Genesis lays out when it says that God made all the animals to roam the earth. I don't recall anything about eggs in there! :)

  5. I knew that's where this was going! And I wish I had some deep, thoughtful answer, but I don't know what I believe.

    I do know the chicken crossed the road, but that's another story entirely...

  7. The chicken, right? Definitely, the chicken.

    Happy writing...

  8. The chicken. God created birds, who lay eggs. If the egg came first, who sat on it to make it hatch?

  10. Good Morning!

    The Chicken!

    GE 1:24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

    God's word will always provide the answer!

    Blessings on this Friday morning

  11. Definitely the chicken, based on creation. Which one would I rather eat? Chicken. But I do love a good omelete, with chicken, of course! :0)

  12. No question- it was the chicken that came first. No mention of the creation of eggs in the Bible! Cluck if you love chickens!

  13. I'm going to go with chicken--God created animals, so I think He probably made the chicken and then the chicken laid an egg.

  14. I'd like to say the chicken but perhaps the Lord enjoyed watching the lovely baby chick hatch from the egg. I'd like to ask him some day =) *sigh* why do I long for eternity so?

  15. My vote is for chicken, for all the creation reasons given :) Happy Friday!

  16. It had to be the egg. Where else would the chicken have come from? But then where did the egg come from? Aye! Too much to think about.

  17. Ohhh the pressure!!!! (twiddling fingers)
    The chicken ... No ... the Egg!
    Ok... the Chicken... yes!! Definitely the chicken!

    Thanks for the laugh Wendy!

  19. Oh, definitely the chicken. God made birds on what, the fifth day? Maybe I'd better brush up on creation... :) Have a great day!

  20. I say the chicken. The egg is just the shell much like when were are in our mother's stomach. It is all about the chicken in the end though. At least I think so. Is there are real right answer to this? I am curious now. I think that I am going to google it. :o)

  21. If the egg came first, what sat on it?

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Chicken, without a doubt, God created her, then she walked across the street, to lay an egg. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Both--I think God has the ability to create a complete being in one moment (so chicken with egg).

  24. I just love the music. That's my response for today! :-)

  25. The chicken. I agree with everyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I believe that God made the Chicken first and then came the egg just like children came after Adam and Eve. Also why Noah brought two of each animal not the eggs of the animals.

  27. The egg. No, the chicken. No, the egg... ;)

My husband and I love to joke how in the 80s people didn’t care near as much what they looked like as they do today. Just watch 80s TV. H...
