Which came first? No doubt, this rather cute little question was dreamed up by someone trying to be clever. But the answer to this question is more profound than most people realise.
Here you have a chicken, and over here you have an egg. Which came first?
This creates an impossible dilemma, if you believe in classic evolution theory – that is, if you go along with the idea that all species originally came from a more primitive species before them (which is an altogether different concept to varieties developing within the same species).
Classic evolution theory might have you believing that millions of years of gradual development of the egg eventually produced a chicken. Or was it the other way around?
It should be obvious to anyone that this could never have actually happened. Birds, and eggs, had to get it right the very first time they evolved… On the very first try — on the first go. If it didn’t work out perfectly the first time, then the bird race would have died out. They would not have survived more than one generation if you had partly formed chickens or birds trying to hatch out of partly formed non-functional eggs.
The very first time it happened, if an egg didn’t produce a fully functioning chicken or bird capable of laying perfect eggs from then on, the whole evolutionary process would have stalled. It would have ground to a halt. It would not have, and could not have continued.
Evolutionists might answer this by claiming I am trivialising the issue, and over simplifying a complicated process.
So, in order to make my point clearer, let’s talk about something more complicated: butterflies.
Instead of two stages, butterflies go through four stages in their life cycle.
4) adult butterfly
How did the first butterflies develop these stages?
In order to survive, butterflies had to get this formula right on the very first go, or else they would not have survived. There wouldn’t be any butterflies at all, if they couldn’t do it right the very first time.
Think it through.
When a caterpillar turns to mush inside a chrysalis, how come a butterfly pops out afterwards? Why doesn’t a grasshopper pop out instead? Or maybe a cockroach?
Plus here’s a real problem for evolution. The female butterfly must find a male butterfly in order to mate and then lay eggs. So at least two caterpillars had to evolve at exactly the same time for this process to work. They both had to make a chrysalis and come out as butterflies. Except one had to come out as a male, and the other had to come out as a female. If this didn’t happen correctly on the very first try for both of them, then the whole process of butterfly continuation and survival could not have occurred in the first place.
Please explain how they gradually evolved with only partially formed abilities.
You can’t explain it because it didn’t happen.

Think this through. After mating, the female has to have within it’s makeup the ability to lay eggs that contain the blueprint for the whole cycle to repeat all over again.
Realise that if it didn’t happen perfectly with at least two butterflies of the opposite sex evolving at the same time the first time, with both containing a blueprint within them for the next generation of butterflies to continue… if this didn’t happen they would NOT have kept on keeping on.
Are the scales of deception beginning to fall from your eyes?
Darwin’s ‘Origin of the Species’ THEORY of evolution is not true. It never has been true.
You’ve been fooled.
The theory of evolution is for mental caterpillars.
It’s time to grow up! Why be a mental caterpillar? Why not grow up, transform your thinking, and learn to fly instead?
Do you really want to know the answer to my headline question?
The Bible tells you by implication which came first. It was the chicken.
The chicken came first, fully formed with a well designed reproductive system already built into it. God also created a fully formed man first, not an embryo first. God created all creatures fully formed to start with, using this same principle, including chickens and butterflies.
Here’s a poem I wrote several years ago. Even though you may not like poetry, check it out!
How pretty, is a butterfly
On pastel powder wings
It flutters through the scented air
Unlike lower mortal things
How beautiful, a butterfly…
It doesn’t have to wait
It flutters past oblivious
To worry fear and hate
How perfect, is a butterfly
Such a lovely, wondrous thing!
What a complex marvel of creation
In just one tiny wing
How transient, a butterfly
Painted flower on the breeze…
It flutters passed unnoticed
It dies, and no one sees.
