I believe that all men are created equal. Not everybody is or looks the same, but everybody deserves the same rights and opportunities. Some people in the world believe that not everybody is equal, that not everybody deserves the same, that some people don’t deserve to be treated equal. No matter what the color of your skin, your race, or your ethnicity you are equal to everybody.
Some people might think that if you are black then you aren’t as good as they are, but there are people from all races and ethnicities that have been famous for being intelligent or good at a sport. Just because someone isn’t as smart as others mean that they aren’t equal. They just didn’t get as good of an education, had personal problems, or didn’t make good decisions. If we weren’t equal then one race or ethnicity would take over and the other races or ethnicities would extinct. Everybody is created equal and should be treated equally.
We are: equally innocent, equally dependent, and equally insured by the Dec. of Ind. free to pursue happiness. However, there is no guarantees that we will all develop the same abilities, share the same experiences, or have the same desires. Our government for example can build Universities insuring that all citizens have the same opportunities to attend, it cannot insure your willingness, personal circumstances or ability to attend. As the FDA can limit the drugs marketed, insure a certain quality but cannot insure that every citizen will metabolize a drug in the same way. No one is perfect, no country, no government can guarantee complete equality when government is of the people for we are after all equally human.
Yes, all men are born with a penis. That makes them equal. The mind at birth is a clean slate. How they develop makes men unequal by the time they reach puberty. I was created equal but I am smarter than 99% of the population because I developed that way. You are not my equal. I'm not saying I am better than you---just not equal.
Just because I maybe Black or African American does not mean that i am not capable of doing the same thing that a Caucasian can do. As a matter of fact I know some Caucasian's that can not do things that I am capable of doing. I also know females that can do things that i am not able to do
All men are created equal because everyone has an equal chance to succeed in life and everyone has the chance to do some thing good. Family background doesn't make a difference because only that person can make a change to their behaviour or educational abilities. So all men have a chance to succeed so yes everyone is equal.
Evolution supplies each member of a species with the same DNA, allowing each the same level of perfection. Some lions are not born inferior to other lions. The same with humans. But while lions become perfect lions, if there’s no genetic damage or environmental shortcomings, humans are not genetically equipped with the appropriate instincts and anatomy to automatically become perfect members of the species Homo sapiens. However, we have been genetically equipped with a rich imagination, creative talents and the freedom of choice to overcome the challenges of life. Our perfection is described in Matthew 5: our goal must be to use our innate talents fully so as to become the salt of the earth (i.E. The spice that gives culture it’s variety). In a nutshell, Matthew 5:48: “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Jewish psychiatrist Alfred Adler (1870–1937) elaborated: “God who is eternally complete, who directs the stars, who is the master of fates, who elevates man from his lowliness to Himself, who speaks from the cosmos to every single human soul, is the most brilliant manifestation of the goal of perfection.”
We all were born equal. With nothing but our physical body. No common sense, no money, no education. That is something we develop over the years. How can we call one child more successful or more wealthy when it has just arrived in this world. It has nothing. We need to understand that. And give everyone equal rights.
Let me clarify my answer. When I say all men are created equal, I mean we are all born with a blank slate - no knowledge, no common sense, nothing but a physical body and a mind with the potential to do great things. Things get complicated when you start to factor things in like the learning environment, outside influences, and living conditions, which affect the way humans develop (and often unequally).

Man was created equal, but not the same. It is man who changed the equality of everybody putting themselves on top but in reality everyone is equal but not the same. If you were born in Japan and someone else in California, they were born equally but raised differently. Equal opportunities, but different choices.
When we say people are created equal, we mean people are able to do certain things just by being here, like live, be free, and try to be happy. We don't mean that everyone has similar intelligence, similar strength, or whatever comparison you might want to draw. I don't believe any of that is possible and no one else really should either.
One of the major ills of society (current and for the past ten thousand years) is the lack of awareness that worth is not measured by how you relate to the outside world but by how the outside world relates to you. That is to say that to each person the world revolves around them and others are merely measured to by how much they affect you. Since to each person the world is slightly less important than them you merely have to apply the golden rule (do unto others as you would have done to yourself) and you are forced to look as a conception on everyone being created equal (YES I KNOW THAT WAS A BIT WORDY BUT TO ME IT MADE SENSE)
Looking from left column and right column we all seem to realize that the answer is yes (ideals), and no (reality). Ideally we are all equal, and basically we are. We have the right to live. We have the right to freedom, happiness and to fair treatment from others.
But in reality everything is different. Physical differences, social and economic background, privileges, intelligence, and determination make people different than one another. And then there are deeds, which are the most important things in differentiating one against another.
It is useless to argue these inequalities don't exist.
Mostly this differences means inequality in people's life quality (indicated by power or wealth),
but not an inequality to the basic rights - to pursue a happy life.
The truth is that we live in a world where peoples' life quality are mostly unequal, but it doesn't mean that one human life is more precious than another. It doesn't mean one side can oppress the other because they are superior in some ways (wealth, strength). Inequality in basic rights will succumb into discrimination and oppression, and this kind of inequality is simply -- morally wrong.
So yes, men should be equal (even if they are not).
I believe the question is not are we all born with same capabilities. Of course we are all different that is what makes the world beautiful-diversity. Some of us are smarter than others, some are taller, stronger, faster etc. But that is not the question at hand. All man are created equal to law, we all have the same rights. And let's not forget that the differences among us are mostly formed through environmental effects, our society forms who we are. So, someone who is born in a poor family is less likely to become an intellectual because he spends his time trying to survive. It is our duty as a society to minimize those differences by treating everyone equally.
Equality is not determined wealth, power, or any other disability/advantage. Each human is equal because they are each a human. Although one man may have a benefit over another, this does not make him the greater man. I judge a man by what he's done, a infant has done nothing.
God made all men equal in the sense of your soul and other things, but many people do not work toward being smarter and those should not remain equal to the people that actually work hard. People born with physical and mental disabilities can still work, and equality should be based on work ethics and other things, so yes all men are created equal.
Law of conservation of energy is something that no one can ever deny. It is true that some people are better than others in some abilities, but they will be equalled by nature by having something less in some other part. So people may be unequal in part, but when the whole is considered, they will definitely be equal. The contrary of this can only happen if law of conservation itself is false. But if that is false then all science is false.
No one has or should have special rights that others do not have. I adapt this definition of "rights" as a rightful or valid claim to the use of property to achieve a value. This would be by a being having Free Will. As I see it no one is above anyone else, no matter their circumstances in this physical life. If Jerry thinks he is better than Bob and decides to kill Bob, Bob can kill Jerry. Jerry would not have a valid claim to take Bob's Life and Bob, assuming he values his life, now has a valid claim to defend it with Deadly force if need be. This goes for anything else that Jerry thinks he can claim because "he is above Bob." He has no valid claim and cannot argue that his value placed in the use of the property Bob has claimed first, is superior.
However, as others have mentioned, this word gets tangled up in misleading definitions and some think that equal means the same, as in a wealthy man should be robbed of his wealth and it should be given to those who are not wealthy. That is seriously flawed logic and only serves to cause resentment and division. That wealthy man may decide voluntarily to help a less fortunate one by employment, or simply teaching the person how to become wealthy. It has to be by consent of the individuals involved in the interaction, etc.
Philosophically, equality is simply a recognition that no man is greater than another. Our perception of characteristics is not reality. There is no definitive way of proving superiority because it doesn't exist. You cannot prove a negative. Taken literally, this would make no sense. Each man was created by his parents with a different genetic composition. Since I know this phrase wasn't intended to be taken literally, I can confirm it.
I believe that no matter what race, color, anything, you should be treated the same as the average person. That being said, all men are created equal. I don't think all men stay equal. If you are a serial killer when you grow up, obviously, you aren't treated as well as the president of the United States. I think that, when born, you are equal to everyone then. But, once you grow up, you are treated based on your personality, accomplishments, etc. And, I think that's the way it should be.
Others have already pointed this out, but, to reiterate: Those saying "yes" are saying "yes" to all men being equal as objects of intrinsic value and worth; those saying "no" are saying "no" to all men being equal of ability and life circumstances. These two votes are not mutually exclusive. Most of us probably believe both positions.
All humans are intrinsically valuable and equally needing of love, compassion, and grace. At the same time, it is an obvious, observable fact that individual humans are different from one another in the life circumstances which influence them and the choices they make. A mass murderer, a Christian saint, and a young child are all equal in their underlying nature as human souls-- but they are not 'the same' in terms of what they have been exposed to and how they have responded.
We're not saying everyone should get the same stuff, or even live the same life, but the statement itself is what makes this true. True, some will always make worse decisions than others but that doesn't mean they can't turn it around, for the rest of their existence, right now.
The 'No' people are answering a different question then the 'Yes' people. The No people are answering on the basis of physical or mental equality, while the Yes people are answering on the basis of an equal right to treatment and opportunity. Personally, since the Declaration of independence is shown on the opening of this debate, and since I believe that the Founding Fathers were considering the second point rather than the first, I will say yes in this debate.
Yes actually I think so. All men are at least born equal and will later chose how they want to be treated (subconciously of course) but yes they are created equal. Can you consider one unborn child better than another? Babies are all equally important wether you are born a prince or a slave in your mother's womb, completely innocent, you are equal.
I know and acknowledge the fact that we are all made differently with a different face, with different attitudes, with different abilities, with different agendas and I love that. I LIKE it that way. But every human is born a human, and should be treated as such. We have the same inherent rights, same obligations, same opportunities. Facial, religious, and most importantly racial factors should not be a hurdle in succeeding.
All people were definitely created equal, even despite the fact, that in today's world
people are different by the level of knowledge, age, race; we're all still were created
equal . And the theory of the main character Rodion Raskolnikov from the famous novel “Crime and Punishment” by F. Dostoyevsky about: people can be divided on those “who have the right” to cross the such- called moral boundary and those who are “trembling creatures”, and who need to obey the strongest ones is not actual and has never been. No matter how well - educated or clever the person is, it still doesn’t give him/her the right to decide that someone is “better” than the other one.
Everyone has it's equal right to live and die, to develop and to succeed in something.
No one is smarter than anyone else. If anyone can show me proof that their brain matter is of finer quality than someone with a mental deficiency then they may have point. Until then factors such as environment and access to resources are what influence intelligence and behavior. It is where and what you are born into that factors into our intellect.
"The brain has no mechanism for deciding what is relevant and what is not. If a "smart person" is living in a fascist country that person only becomes a fascist faster."
The idea that all men are created equal refers to their moral value. The inherent dignity of the human being is such that every person has incalculable value. This does not mean that they are factually equal. Some are stronger, some are smarter, some are more hard-working. This leads to inequalities in day to day life that do not conflict with the essential equality of men.
Everyone is brought into this world the same way, they are created the same way and everyone has the same chance to succeed. Everyone is equally as important and can be equally as successful as the next man. As far as created equal, we are all brought into this world the same way, we are all brought into this world the same way.
Some of us are born with physical or mental disabilities, others are born into financially insecure families and thus have significantly less opportunities in life rather than the more financially stable denizens of the world. Some are even limited by their family. For example, only a very select few people could become king or queen of a nation because a family lineage that is exclusive to blood relatives. While these are true, it is no excuse to act as if we are not all created equal. No person chose the circumstances they were born into and is therefore unethical and illogical to judge others based on their intelligence, appearance, or family.
We are not equal: spiritually as determined by drive, physically due to some chemistry fluctuations, penis size, height, mental capacity due to chemical imbalances-deformities etc-. What would make you think other wise? Oh hmm all men are created equal of biblical proportion? Don't believe everything you read. By the way the above list goes on and on.
This is a fact. Even when you take all types of equality into account you still end up with the result that we are not equal. Whether this is physically, mentally, or opportunity, no one is truly equal. We all strive to be the best, but some people are just better gifted. Look at all the handicapped people, they are still humans, but they are not equal physically. I could constantly list other situations to prove that we are all not equal.
You can't say that a person who is born in a poverty stricken area is equal to a person born in a first world country such as Canada or the U.S.A. These first world citizens are born privileged just by the area they were born. They are more privileged and not equal.
Naturally varying degrees of genetic mutations assure that we aren't born physically equal and radically different social conditions world-round prevent us from inheriting equal opportunities for at the very least our developmental years (and likely, our whole lives). However, these facts certainly are not a basis or justification for discrimination, in fact, it is the quite the contrary. If anything, this just provides all the more reason as to why we should pursue a society where all people can be provided equal chances, even if it is by means of virtual compensation for something out of their hands. At the end of the day, we are all just trying to be something better than what we currently are.
If one were to take a look from 1,000 miles away & drop all bias they would see a remarkable hypocrisy. Humans as a species have always & will always compete to find who is superior, the Ego. Even in modern day for example consider the Olympics. All Nations competing against one another to prove superiority. Television is flooded with 'Reality Shows' that receive more votes for singers than ballots for Presidents & just about everything on the Media is based on scaring one another into influence or purchases. We live in a time & society where even the Vatican declares their belief in science which would have you labeled as a Heretic during the Crusades. All People should have equal rights, however it would be a misunderstanding to believe that all people are Equal. Often one is asked who is the judge of this value? You are the Judge of all values within your own mind, I am simply stating facts; what you decided to perceive it as is your judgment & opinion. We are Simply Animals in an endless game to confuse & beat each other & ideally come out on top, calling a rose by any other name is just as sweet.
There are people with an objectively lower quality of living. There are people who are more satisfied with their life. It was all a matter of luck regarding who you were born as. But it's not out of your control. If you want to reach the top, work for it.
Nearly everything in nature has a distribution, some traits follow a normal or bell curved distribution, IQ, height, weight, mathematical aptitude, various psychological traits and so on. For any population or trait, there will some exceptionally endowed with that trait and some who are lacking. Some populations will have lower averages than others - this is not bias it is scientifically established - however even in the population with the lowest mean, there can be outliers who outperform nearly anyone. Individuals can deviate from the population but on average, by its very definition they do not. It is important not to base everything on exceptions but more on the rule - don't delude oneself. It is clear that people do not have equal physical prowess and certainly they do not have equal mental prowess either. Regardless of what they are given by nature, some people squander it away in an unproductive even parasitic life whereas some who have had large adversity, work hard to make the world a better place. People are definitely not equal in accomplishments and those who accomplish should be recognized. Being PC and calling everything equal when it is not encourages mediocrity. Students who excel should be recognized and those who don't apply themselves to anything should not be called "creative" to make them feel better when they have created no piece of art, engineering marvel or mathematical explanation for the nature of the universe. Empty praise and the cult of "self-esteem" has done countless harm to our society - this need to make everything equal when it clearly is not does no one a service and weakens all. Help the talented excel and help everyone else figure out their limits and find a productive thing to do with their life - it is fine to pursue longshots but encourage people to have a realistic fall back also.
The only way people can inject fairness into the lottery of life is by affording equal opportunity for all people so they can achieve their potential. Unfortunately we don't even allow that. The dice are loaded even before we are born and everybody knows it....Whether they admit it or not. And the few unlikely success stories which are rolled out to cow criticism of a corrupt, unfair society are merely the exceptions that prove the rule.
Some are black some are white, hatian, dominican, asian, african, arabian etc. Yes we all come into the world the same way, but we are all born with different social statuses. Some are born rich, while others will unfortunately have to suffer for the remainder of their lives. Time goes on and who gets treated with more respect and has more oppurtunity to do things with their life? The fithy rich or the dirt poor? Money is the key essential to everyones lives no matter what anyone says. Without it the world could not exist. The poor man could possibly rise to the top but it would be very hard for him to do. While the rich man already has everything he needs. We are created equal. But the opportunities vary dramatically.
The phrase is overused today. It was meant to assert that everyone had equal basic rights, not that everyone is equal in all ways. People have different abilities and aptitudes, some above average and some below (that's the meaning of "average"). People need to accept that a range of abilities is not a bad thing, and that academics are only one measure of intelligence and potential.
Only the common man believes he is the equal to an obviously superior (either mentally or physically) specimen. This is because we as humans have an inferiority complex. We're afraid to admit that we might not be the best.
But, when you think about it, all men are not created equal, nor do some ever have the chance to attain equality. I was not born rich, wish a trust fund and scholarship. But many people were, and they had opportunities that I will never have. Graduating from Harvard as a legacy, attending MIT, so many things they take for granted and I will never experience, because their parents had more money than mine. Many people are born naturally gifted, with an astounding aptitude for certain talents. Others are born without those aptitudes. Many people are born retarded, cripples, inbred, and all sorts of other nastiness that can certainly label someone as "unequal."
And if you think you can argue that "Spiritually we ARE all equal", then save your breath, I don't listen to mystics and superstitious mumbo-jumbo.
And if you assert that "In the eyes of the law we are all equal" I will say bull-crap and tell you to stop taking the blue pill, and wake the hell up.
If we are all equal, then we are all fools. We are not all smart, and we all are not strong. Some of us are criminals and some of us sane and just. So how can someone say we are equal? Are we all rich? No, most of us are poor. Certainly we all are not created equal. I made my case because if we are equal this debate is invalid.

We are all different. We are all "created" or more accurately "formed" differently. We are each unique. Each of us possess differing levels of natural ability in various realms. The Declaration of Independence states "all men are created equal". This is false. A more honest approach would be to say each should be provided equal opportunity in the minds of those who seek mediocracy. However, this is unrealistic. Any demand or expectation thereof is dishonest and irresponsible.
If without physical, mental, or financial problems we are all equal. Then if we live inside that kind of world is no different than being nonexistent or dead. Is like we don't exist at all since we are all created equal and the same without these problems. If we are all the same without these problems we might as well do not exist or better yet kill ourselves since there are no individuality between us. We are all the same anyway.
People are born with different how can we mechanical make people equally same. If people are all same the society even can't work or develop. At that time our society will go backward because people in every position are not actually good at it. People are afraid of being intelligent and different which is totally horrible and pathetic.
Both genetics and social background shape every individual. Whether we like it or not, some people will be born with more value than others: intelligence, ability, refinement, discernment, morals, education, insight, energy, inclination towards ethical behavior, etc.
The idea that everyone should be treated the same, should be accorded the same level of respect, importance or say is beyond irrational and counterproductive. We can use whatever labels we want, but the elites will always find a way to get and stay on top. We can now choose whether we should "breed" elites that act in the interest of a larger good or strictly in their own selfish interest.
No matter what government you have, you shall always have a social structure. The people at the head of the social structures would be considered "more equal" than others. Even if everybody is at the same social status, such as perfect communism, then the people with the most fame would be "more equal" because they would have the greatest power.
This is a fact. Even when you take all types of equality into account you still end up with the result that we are not equal. Whether this is physically, mentally or opportunity. Physically, we all look different; we all each unique individuals. Also, mentally no-one is equal, as we all have different levels of intellectality. Even though we should all be treated equally we are not. No-one ever has the same amount of opportunities in life as other people. This is due to their background, which is also unique to every person. Our backgrounds influence who we are and our opinions.
Some are created with missing body parts or extra; therefore, physically humans are not equal. Furthermore people have different IQ levels and are not equally intelligent, such as the child genius. Spiritually speaking, some are created with more faith then others; however, this point is impossible to prove since it cannot be tested at birth or fertility. Faith can be measured at an early age and when it is measured by a simple test it proves differences from person to person. We are not all created equal, but similar. Even unto death, we are not all equal according to the bible. Enoch and Elijah did not physically die.
In the eye's of the law in the US, all men are created equal - this is true. You don't server prison because your parents are in prison.
In the eye's of society, in regards to abilities, in regards to opportunities , in regards virtually everything else you can think of - then no.
I say that are men are not created equal because some men are born with disability and are sometimes made fun of and called retarded and stupid even though their not. People that are races don't get along with people that are not their color or their race and they will not talk to them at all cause of their color. People also don't talk to people that are like them and can be like them which is called social status.
Some people are born into poverty and other into the one percent. While nothing makes us 'better' than anyone else, we are not all given equal chances to survive and prosper. Genetically people are born inferior too, with people suffering anything from cancer to asthma. Theses are not things that can be helped, but things that can be fixed. There is no reason for people to treat each other as anything but equal.
If I were born into a wealthy family, lived in a nice house, had excellent parents and were given a superb education, how can is be that I am equal to someone who is very poor, has no fixed address, whose parents were drug addicts and who hardly ever attended school? I'm not saying that it's their fault, they're a victim of circumstance. However, how can we be equal? I have so much more potential and opportunity than them. I have support where they have not.
The Government can offer them the opportunity and support, yes. Will they take that opportunity though? Or will they continue to live as their ancestors have? Will they end the vicious cycle? Do they have the will? The common sense to do so?
How can I be compared to a rapist or a murderer? I have done none of these things yet I'm still equal to them? Going to prison does not mean that they have lost their equality. They have lost their liberty but did they have the right to it originally?
What about anti-social behavior? My teenager isn't the same as the fourteen year old who just burned down a house. They are not equal.
How can we stop this from happening though? How can we make every man equal to the next? Is early intervention enough to help these children when they're adults? Or is it genetic, like alcoholism, is it bred into them? Can they be helped?
All men are not created equal; we do not start life at the same level.
Since humans tend to be different psychologically, we should treat people as such. Most people are not wholly superior to others, though, and we still mostly need to operate under the assumption that we are equal for society to work. However, I do not believe that those with significant psychological abnormalities can be held on equal footing with those who are not. For example, a severely mentally disabled person should not be held accountable for many of their actions. Conversely, those who are gifted should be celebrated and raised in a manner which will help them help society. But still, I believe no one is inferior or superior, just not equal in every manner.
Because the term 'equality' was not defined properly, this post will be based on the assertion that this poll is asking whether or not people are created equally physically or mentally. Due to genetics and the passing of dominant genes to offspring, some people may inherit characteristics that will give them advantages such as an increase in testosterone which will make the males more muscular. This one example is proof that not everyone is created equally and that some people are born with traits that give them advantages over others.
Most people may not be born equally. Some may look better,or be more intelligent. So people may not be born equal but they have the potential to improve themselves whether or not they were born equal. You may be born a bit slower than other kids but that doesn't mean you will be forever.
Some are born swifter of foot, some with greater beauty. Some are born into poverty; others are born sick and feeble. Both in birth and upbringing in shear scoop of ability that, every human is inherently different! Yes, that is why people discriminate against one another, which is why there is struggle, competition, and the unfaltering march of progress! Inequality is not wrong, equality is! What of the EU who made equality a right? Rabble politics by a popularity contest. The Chinese federation with its equal distribution of wealth? A nation of lazy dullards. But not our beloved Britannia. We fight, we compete; evolution is continuous! Britannia alone moves forward; advancing steadily into the future. Even with the death of my son Clovis, demonstrates Britannia’s unswerving commitment to progress! We will fight on, we shall struggle, compete, plunder, and dominate and in the end the future shall be ours! All Hail Brittania!
The strict and literal answer is no. Everyone has a different genome and is raised in a different background, so everyone will end up different. Some people will be better at certain things than others. However, that doesn't mean that people should be denied opportunities based on some inherent feature. Everyone is not created equal, but everyone should have an equal opportunity to succeed.
The supposition by Jefferson is, basically, to treat everyone as equals - with respect & kindness, but, pedantically, we are not equal. People are confused on the issue and I bet over 90% of rational people on this debate agree with one another. Those saying "yes" are talking about how we should respect people. The people saying "no" are talking about physiological differences.
No, the truth is everyone are not created equal. There are a few who are born supreme or better than others in both mind and body. No one says that because a huge majority of people are born inferior to some. People don't say that because they want to keep their image or deny the truth so they can believe the illusion that keeps them safe. All men are created equal is just a phase to prevent conflict and chaos in society and keep all human beings under control and order. Without that society would be thrown into chaos.
We dont have the same character ristics as each other. We don't have the same qualities. None of us even look exactly the same. Some of us get picked on by our siblings. Certainly some people are older than others. Genetically we are not equal. Even some of us live longer lives then each other.Overall all men are not created equal
That being equal means having the same capabilities then obviously we are not equal. Physical size and strength differ as do mentalities. Sociopaths are born predisposed to the condition that causes them to later in life become almost non-human. We are not all born innocent. Those with empathy are the target of sociopaths and easily succumb to their con games. Can a 5 foot tall woman person defend themselves against a 250 lb. Violent sociopath? If the sociopath is their brutal dictator the equality is out the window? Brain power has the same pitfalls and differences.
The list is almost endless.
The only valid argument for "Yes" is that all men will die. That is the only true equality that men share.
Of course we're not. We’re talking genetics here, the most basic start for every human. Nature doesn’t make anything the same: from snowflakes, to fingerprints to zebra stripes. Add environmental influences, and that assures humans will vary in intelligence, health, personality and abilities. So are people actually created unequal? Absolutely. You might even say it’s "self-evident."
