  3. no.5 - that is not a riddle, it is an argument of philosophy and religion. infinite regression.

    but you can say that dinosaur eggs exist prior to chickens.

    if you mean a chicken egg then a chicken which we know of todaythen the genetic mutation would have to exist in egg form before any other form

  4. Chicken egg question is not really a riddle, though an egg contains a chicken within it, so even if the egg came first, there is also a chicken developing inside. It does also make sense to say dinosaurs payed eggs, but I think the question originally referres to a chicken egg
