  • Just because people are treated without equality doesn't mean they are any less of a person.

    Being treated without equality and being unequal are two very different ideas. In today's world, there is injustice and ranks of who is 'better'. But who decides that? The 'better' people advertise themselves to the public and sell themselves as more prominent, prettier, or more intelligent. But who is to judge? Everyone has a different belief of what prominence, beauty, and intelligence is. So how can all of these differing beliefs come down to one scale of equality? It can't. Everyone is essentially the same thing. We all start the same way and have the same basic functions. We are all better at something AND worse at something than somebody. In that way, WE ARE ALL EQUAL.

  • Time for an opinion

    Well since this is an opinion poll and not a debate, I'm not going to use secular arguments (as I usually do). I'm expecting a lot of people to disagree with me, but if you bash me for it, I really don't care. This is my opinion. I believe God created all men and women to be equal, and it is a logical that under a deity all creation of the same type would have equal standing. Therefore, I vote yes.

  • Yes,all human beings are equal.

    Despite physical differences, all human populations are genetically similar. Populations from different parts of the world share even more genetic similarities than you assume.

    All humans are 99.9 per cent identical and, of that tiny 0.1 per cent difference, 94 per cent of the variation is among individuals from the same populations and only six per cent between individuals from different populations.

  • Yes, all human are equal.

    Although some races are treated differently because of prejudice, we are all created equal. Society is the one that puts a label on us and tries to cause an equality through culture and race. There is nothing to divide us as people. We are all born, we live, we die. It is a given. We should all be given equal chances to lead a good and fruitful life.

  • Yes, I do agree that all humans are equal.

    This question, although quite loaded without context, is simple to answer. Yes. All humans are equal. People are equal in the very fact that they are human beings. Ranking one's equality in regards to social or physical standards are personal perceptions from learned behaviors of one's environment. Basing human equality with these variables is erroneous at best, because there is no physical and tangible authority that can determine equality with these biases.

  • Yes, for the most part.

    All humans are (or should be) entitled to the same basic rights. Not all humans are equal since the universe doesn't work that way - some are pretty, some are homely..some are smart, some are slow. Regardless of these variations in the gene pool, however, all of them deserve to be safe, fed, clothed, sheltered and have the chance at finding love.

  • Of Course we are

    We are all self-absorbed machines of flesh and blood who live on a rock spinning around a blazing ball of plasma spinning around a hole that sucks everything near it into Oblivion. We are all equal, because the universe doesn't care, say what you will, but we are all equal in the eyes of the great nothingness. (God[s] don't seem to do much, so that leaves religion as an invalid answer.)

  • Of course we are

    There is nothing that stops you from being president, a queen or king but society. We are all equal and have the same opportunities as mostly everyone on this planet, you may say the government has more power than us, but who gives them the power? We do. Society and numbers. We are equal.

  • Sorry to disappoint the special snowflakes.

    It may sound crude, but in life there will always be losers. For there to be healthy there most be unhealthy, For there to be intelligence there must be idiocy. For there to be strength there must be weakness to dominate over. Simply saying otherwise would go against the very foundation of biological life as a whole. At the end of the day asymmetrical things can not be equal. Now what is considered ideal is a completely different discussion. Some say it is up to the individual, but that is nonsense. Desirable traits are decided by society, and the traits deem desirable always seem to thrive in the given condition of life. For example short giraffes suck, so they died. Owl's with bad eyesight suck, so they die. At the end of the day what is true is not always politically correct.

  • We are not equal

    In western societies, equality is part of the ethos. People fought for the right of equality for ages and it is so commonplace and understood (even if not completely practiced) we regard it as a given right. The quotation "All men are created equal" is arguably the best-known phrase in any of America’s political documents.

    And if all men are created equal, they should be treated as equal in the workplace as well. And they think as themselves as equal. And this creates problems.
    Because we are not equal. We are unique. Special. With different talents, skills, perspectives, life experiences, likes and dislikes. And that means that treating us as if we are the same is wrong. Can you honestly tell me that everybody is equally fitted to be a manager? Of course not. And still, the structures for development in most companies are mainly built on the assumption of equality. People who don't get to be managers feel they are not successful. If we have different talents and needs, why do managers devote equal time to the people they work with instead of giving different people what they need? Why are performance reviews standardized? Because everybody is the same! And we fire the worst performer on the standardized criteria because he is not as good as doing the same thing as everybody else.

    The equality ethos, while not bad or wrong by itself has its limitations. The problem is, it is so entrenched into our thinking, that we export it to areas of life that it has no place in. Have you ever been part of team that needed to make a presentation and the members insisted that everybody speak during the presentation? Nobody asks whether this makes sense or whether this actually hurts the effectiveness of the presentation. No! We are all equal in this team. We all have to participate! That is just a simple example, but it demonstrates how, in places where we don’t have to, we are willing to sacrifice performance for artificial equality.

    It is time we leave equality to the human rights field and start treating people as unique beings and not as cogs in a productivity machine.

    All men are not born equal. Whoever tells you that is lying. All man should deserve an equal opportunity to excel, to be happy and to use their comparative advantage. That is the truth. And there is a big difference between the two. Nobody can be good at everything. People who truly excel do it by recognizing their comparative advantage, maximizing it and letting other people do what they are better at than them.

  • No humans are equal

    We are all different a blind person cant fly an airplane someone is tall while another person is short a person with a brain dysfunction cant function similarly then a person with an average brain some can afford college while some cant no one in this world is equal due to everyone being different.

  • We are not equal

    You o, humans are not all equal by any reasonable definition of the word. It is absolute fact that humans differ on an individual level and even among groups on average. The inequalities in terms of intellectual, emotive and physical abilities cannot all be explained away by discrimination. Most people accept the idea of evolution in non-human animals, so the idea that humans living in vastly different conditions could have also developed differing traits is hardly a stretch. If you want to argue on a philosophical level that we are all equal because we are all flesh and blood and whatever other appeals to emotion, then the same can be said about everything. This same line of logic would also lead to the conclusion that since we are all composed of matter, we are therefore all the same and equal.

  • No. Just. No.

    Humans are not equal to one another. This is not as simple as skin color or religion. One person can be exceptionally excellent at everything and then another person can be exceptionally horrible at everything. That's not equality. Just face it there's always going to be someone better than you.

  • It's not equal!!!

    We are born with unequal life and different people have different life. We need each other to survive, we support each other to make our life better and more balance. If life is equal, then we'll not see who is better, we need those who is petty and low to show that we're higher than them.

  • Definitely Not Equal

    Evolution and Natural Selection would not work if every individual within a species was equal. Goes against science entirely to believe people are equal. There's a reason why certain people are perceived as beautiful by a majority of people while others are not. This is because we are NOT equal.
