The egg came first, technically, but Tesco had to recall all of them due to a fault.

but then it's been awhile since I've read it cover to cover.

Which implies that however long ago, you actually have done it. I've never read more than a few verses at one go, and that only when being forced to in RE at school.

But it's one of those random bits of triva that i know without knowing the details as it comes up peridocially.

The following has been shamelessley stolen from some google search:

If you believe in the Bible, the chicken came first. "And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. And God said, 'Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven'." Genesis 1:19-20. Chickens are a type of fowl, so the Christian Bible says that chickens came first.

I have no idea what happened on the 3 previous days (and don't really care), but from reading that i assume that god didn't specifically create eggs - the fool - on one of those days.

Wow - so right you are - about the fowl thing and a chicken being fowl - but tasty.

Yes, I have had to read it several times - cover to cover. Being raised both Anglican and Catholic, and having to go through both religion's versions of cathechism - it was on the "best seller list". I keep a copy around for reference when it's needed and I guess I'll go look up the chicken (fowl) thing now. Maybe I'll just take your word for it since you took the time to google it.

I presume, that you would agree that chickens don't fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. (unless you count flapping their wings, and fly for 2 metres, before crashing to the ground like WWII-kamikaze-pilots, is something you would call flying).

But then again reading Genesis 1:30. I presume christians should be vegetarians. (or is that a bad Dutch translating I have)

I was going to join the dinosaurs-layed-eggs-before-there-were-chickens bandwagon, but I think another biblical pasage sums it up better:

"And lo, unto Mary's Uncle's second-niece-twice-removed, a half-egg-half-chicken was born."

So the more relevant question would be: which came first, the bangers or the mash?

Are you sure, you are not confused with this little fellow: http://www.universohq.com/quadrinhos/2003/imagens/Sergio_Toppi_Calimero.jpg

MASH always comes least (at last on television).
