Find it out in the Bible

I stumbled on a small discussion recently on the brain teaser "which came first, the chicken or the egg"  and was really surprised that the answer wasn't apparent so, noticing that they were all christians, I decided to re-phrase the question and asked, "which did God create first."

And they all smiled. Now it was obvious! The chicken, they said.

You see, when it is asked which came first, the chicken or the egg, the mind might tend to wander around bit but when asked which did God create first, the mind especially of most christians, immediately goes to that great book that talks about creation. The bible!

And what does the bible say about it?

Well it didn't say that God created the egg and asked it to go ye and multiply. Definitely not the egg of a warm blooded creature like the chicken!

No, instead the bible says that God created Light and separated it from the darkness; and then He created everything else...and the birds of the air. He also created the land animals and finally man.  And then He said; "go ye and multiply?"

So when next someone asks you a somewhat tricky question, and you're not so sure which way to go, check out the bible. You just might find the answer somewhere in there.
