in reply to Which came first?

The chicken or the egg. Hmmmm....

Well, I suppose we're talking about the Platonic ideal of chicken and egg, since by "the chicken" and "the egg" we are presumably not referring to some specific chicken and egg. And the Platonic ideals of these things must both have existed at the beginning of time. Or, perhaps more accurately, they both exist outside of space-time, and hence the question of which came first is not relevant.
