Egg Mystery Cracked: the Chicken Came First!

CREATION, DAY 5: "And God said, 'Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.' So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, 'Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.'" Gen.1:20-22
It's funny how honest science seems to eventually come around to confirming or agreeing with things written in the Bible. A recent revelation by researchers at Sheffield and Warwick universities in England was no exception, as it answers the age-old question; "which came first, the chicken or the egg?"
Of course, Believers in God's creation of the heavens, earth and everything in them would say, "Duh! The chicken!" But, scientists needed to study it anyway, and now they've come to the same conclusion. (Photo: AP)
According to a Sun article, the researchers discovered that the "formation of eggs is possible only thanks to a protein found in chicken's ovaries. That means eggs have to be formed in chickens first."
And, there you have it. God created the chicken first; the chicken laid an egg.
The findings of the study were published in the paper: Structural Control of Crystal Nuclei by an Eggshell Protein.
Dr Colin Freeman, from Sheffield University's Department of Engineering Materials, noted, "it had long been suspected that the egg came firstbut now we have the scientific proof that shows that in fact the chicken came first."
He 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."
