One such mystery is the great chicken versus the egg debate. According to National Geographic, scientists have finally settled the old dispute over which came first – the chicken or the egg. These scientists say that reptiles were laying eggs thousands of years before chickens appeared and the first chicken came from an egg laid by a bird that was not quite a chicken, Thus, there can be no doubt, the egg came first.
