Here is a paragraph that I have just read:
Yet greater difficulties for evolutionary theory involve the origin of the complete genetic code--a requirement for cell reproduction.The old puzzle of 'the chicken or the egg' rears its head relative to proteins and DNA.Hitching says:''Proteins depend on DNA for their formation.But DNA cannot form without pre-existing protein.''This leaves the paradox Dickerson raises:''Which came first,'' the protein or the DNA?He asserts:''The answer must be,'They developed in parallel.' '' In effect,he is saying that 'the chicken' and 'the egg' must have evolved simultaneously,neither one coming from the other.Does this strike you as reasonable?A Science writer sums it up:''The origin of the genetic code poses a massive chicken-and-egg problem that remains,at present,completely scrambled.''
Thanks for reading and Commenting :)

Evolutionary scientist are forever chasing their tales while at the same time wondering if they ever had them. It would be comical if it weren't so pitifully telling. Being as I hold to a Christian world view, I'm almost certain that God created all living things in a fully-formed state. After all, when Adam was asked to name the chicken he apparently didn't name it "egg". We'll of course never learn the absolute truth in this life, but eventually we will. As Paul so elequently phrased it "We see through a glass darkly, yet one day all things will be revealed".2
