chicken or egg? nature or nurture? word or flesh?

I'll choose chicken over egg, because creating an egg is not as exciting as creating a fully functional, complete chicken.

Both nature and nurture play an important role, but I think nurture wins out. Culture trumps biology--that's what makes humans different than the rest of the Kingdom & Phylum and makes the Sapiens "sapiens."

And I'll take word over flesh, since flesh is corruptable and prone to decay. Word can live on into the future.
