That's easy, because it had free will.

Oh but hold on, how did the chicken decide to cross the road?

Well I suppose because it had a brain.

But did it have a choice about how its brain was going to be wired up or what instincts drove it? Did it have a choice about how it was brought up free-range or battery farmed and its inherent biases regarding tarmac, kerbs and fast moving cars? Did the chicken have the mental faculty to determine every possible outcome of crossing the road or not at that particular time or in the future?

Probably not. So it didn't really have free will. But if free will doesn't exist, then how can it freely decide whether to go to Chicken Heaven or KFC?

No dummy. Ever hear of an "egg head" ?
It PROVES the egg came first as it had free will.

RE: Atheism destroyed with a question
Whenever a Christian tells me, "well you can't get something from nothing." All I have to say is, "well therefore Brahma and Sheeva created the universe." Or perhaps my two favorite gods "Well then Thor and Odin created the universe."

So to paraphrase your argument, Mathilda:
Did the chicken cross the road?
Yes, because it had free range.

Meanwhile here are two topics on which we really should devote more time and energy...

Atheism might be refuted should new evidence come to light about God, but so far no evidence has been provided.

Isn't the honest position to be agnostic as we do not know and cannot comprehend the evidence that would prove or disprove a deity's existence.

I wish we had a thread about that.

We really ought to get some discussions going about this.

I feel compelled to start one.

But I'm kinda in two minds.

Which must be a kinda dual dualism.

But whether this dual-dualism will continue after I die... ? Consider

I wish we had a thread about that.

And what reason does anyone have to assume that the evidence cannot be comprehended? That is pure conjecture.
