A Timeless Question

Dear Edahn,

Down through the ages has been the question: "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" Now I read that according to Buddhism, "the chicken is in the egg, and the egg is in the chicken". Has the question been answered then? And if so, where the heck do we go from here? ;-)

NICE TRY, BUT SINCE only chickens can make eggs, . . . all chickens come from eggs, . . . every chicken was once an egg, . . . the only source of eggs is chickens, Ahhh, fuck it.

Here's an actual picture of a chicken-dinosaur that predated both of them.
