Riley's comment on 2011-11-24 12:14:27:

which the waters brought forth aboundantly; is this in some way stating the life did indeed come from the waters?

 

Pachomius's comment on 2011-06-27 00:37:55:

"... and every winged fowl after its kind..."


So, the insoluble question which comes first, the chicken or the egg, follow the lead in the Bible, it's the chicken.

That is also what any engineer will do, first make the chicken with an egg inside, which chicken will lay the egg and hatch it at the same time protecting it while hatching it.

If an engineer contrives the egg first, how is it going to survive without a chicken to protect it?

See, the Lord is pretty smart, he made the chicken first with an egg already inside; what a terrific package, only the Lord could and did do that.

All praise to the Lord!


Pachomius
