as a believer in god I don't believe in evolution therefore my answer is the chicken

the precursor to the egg existed before the egg evolved...

question answered, I don't want to see it again.

This sounds like a logical fallacy...

the chicken and the egg are stages in the evolution of the chicken. evolution is just a system by which organisms change. it isn't in the same category as the chicken or the egg. that's like saying that when making bread flour doesn't come first, cooking does.

evolution has no relevance its either or its literally in the question which came first the egg, the question never specifies a chicken egg.

But there has to be a point at which the creature chickens evolved from became chickens. The first creature that can be called a chicken came from am egg. Even before the fetus developed beyond a small ball of cells, the egg existed. Before fertilization occurred, the egg existed.

So it comes down to your definition of what constitutes a chicken egg. If any egg that eventually hatches into a chicken is a chicken egg, that first chicken egg came before the first chicken. If it was not a chicken egg until it contained a chicken, busy definition the chicken came first as until the chicken was there it was not a chicken egg. I can see where you are coming from when you say they came into existence at the same time, but that isn't one of the options in the question.

It is an either or question. There are two possible answers and adding your own response invalidates the question.

That is what I'm saying pls, evolution came before a chicken egg really existed and made a "chicken" so neither came before the other, for once one existed, the other coexisted. So my proper answer to the chicken or the egg is they both started coexisting at the same time.

Evolution is not something that comes along and magical changes something so evolution did not come first and neither did the chicken not the egg, a mutation in the genome of the T-Rex kept mutating until a bird created the modern day chicken.

There are two options in the chicken or egg question, and evolution is not one of them. I am not denying that evolution happened before chickens or eggs existed but it is a totally unrelated answer. Technically the sun existed before chickens, eggs, or evolution, but that is not a meaningful answer to the question either.
