This question is impossible to answer –- from the evolutionary worldview.
Think about it: how did any turkey or egg ever get here, since each is required to produce the other? The question itself suggests that evolution is impossible, for turkeys and eggs could not have evolved simultaneously.
Evolution at its core is a logical impossibility.
However, the question is easy to answer from the Biblical worldview. Genesis teaches clearly that the turkey came first! On Day Five God created the first turkey pair. They produced the first turkey egg following God’s command to reproduce after their own kind.
What a powerful argument for the superiority of Creationism: Evolutionism cannot address this serious question, but Creationism answers it easily. Certainly the question is legitimate and must have an answer since both turkeys and eggs exist.
Who first asked this question?
Surely it was a Biblical Creationist illustrating the absurdity of evolution and demonstrating that Creation is a logical necessity. Today the question is always asked rhetorically without this salient point ever being recognized. What a vivid display of man’s stubborn refusal to accept Genesis!
God created the world in six days by His Word. He designed reproduction according to kind to propagate life. Turkeys produce eggs which yield turkeys… in that exact order without variation. The turkey came first!
Soli Deo Gloria.
