• I am No Different than you are

    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

  • Yes, we all have the same value.

    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.

  • Equality as a Guarantee?

    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

    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.

  • All men are created equal but all men do not develop equal.

    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.

  • Of course they are

    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.

  • Dna, a recipe for perfection, doesn’t discriminate

    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.”

  • All men equal

    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.

  • But with conditions

    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).

  • We are black and white and stronger together,

    Cuase, we are black and white and stronger together,we are black and white and stronger together,
    we are black and white and stronger together,we are black and white and stronger together,
    we are we are black and white and stronger togetherblack and white and stronger together,we are black and white awe are black and white and stronger together,nd stronger together,we are black and white and stronger together,we are black and white and stronger together,

  • It is not fair, but it is true that we are not all created equal.

    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.

  • Reality, it's unavoidable, realization.

    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.

  • Privileged vs Non-privileged

    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.

  • Of Course Not

    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.

  • Of course no

    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.

  • Of course not

    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.

  • It's impossible for all men to be created equal

    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.

  • We are not equal and hopefully never will be.

    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.

  • Not all are equal

    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.

  • Could be "yes" in specific situations

    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.

Lol, Being created equal comes off the premise "being created" which is implied but not substantial enough to hold up.

The question is ambiguous.

Are we taking a perception of how law treats an individual or physiological makeup? Please clear this up and get to the real debate.
