Which Came First, The Chicken Or The Egg? An old age puzzle that confused generations. The genetic code of any kind of population changes only a small degree from one generation to the next. Both interestingly and scientifically, there is no illusion or magic moment where a new species arrives.
According to the Daily Mail, in 2010, Scientists claimed that it was a chicken who came first. They gave the theory of the formation of egg shells which totally relies on a protein, called ovocledidin-17, or OC-17, and interestingly, this protein found only an only in a chicken’s ovaries.
Dr. Colin Freeman, from Sheffield University’s Department of Engineering Materials, said: “It had long been suspected that the egg came first but now we have the scientific proof that shows that in fact, the chicken came first.”
Dr. Freeman further added: “The protein had been identified before and it was linked to egg formation but by examining it closely we have been able to see how it controls the process.”
But, wait now the question arises from where do the Chicken came from? Aristotle, an ancient Greek Philosopher and scientist once concluded that “If there has been the first man he must have been born without father or mother, which is against 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.”
In the end, there are some uncertainties in life that always remain, obviously, some questions remain unanswered even if you have technology, brains and emotions.
