I say no.
No man is created equal.
All men are created unique.
All individual beings are unique may be a better way of phrasing it.
No individual being is created equal.

I'm equal to you,,,more or less. Guess I'd have to meet you to sum that up. Are you short?



Kind regards,

Bally and beer.

I think the point is all human beings share certain equal rights to life, liberty, and property. It is not so much they are all born on an equal footing other than the ones established by basic human rights. The Magna Carta says a lot about this subject as I recall.

In the words from Styggo by the Dandy Warhols, "Its what you do with your time".

The problem comes in when the word "equal" is not defined properly.

Should all humans have the same rights and freedoms? Yes, they should.

Are we all born with value? Yes.

The same value? Not quite.

For example: Bill Gates' life is worth more than mine. My life is worth more than a toerag's...but only just

Sadly as a Cynical person there will never be equality among humans. There's still going to be people that will hate others for some reason due to race, class, religion etc

Yes, they are. Even if people have unique features, they are still equal.

Men are created equal...

Though men tend to think lesser of others

I guess you would have "all men are created unique in the Bill of Rights," and "a certain unique quality makes you a perfect fit for a slave then, right?" Therefore, if everyperson was created unique, if one group of people shared a unique quality, they are deemed one class or sect of people that are best fit for serving other unique people that are good at something else, like controlling another unique group of people.

Mic drop, case closed. Reevaluate your statement.

All things being fair and without the hindrance of man made social constructs, we are created equal.

and yet even with our individual uniqueness, some are indeed created more equal than others.

You know how to make me melt. That is the point of that song.

It has little relation to real life.

No you all have it wrong...it is about the money. You got it you more equal...you don't got it you less equal. Everything else follows...doesn't matter your color, religion or country...it is all about the money.
Cheers

Best post so far.^^^

Someone gets it. How is it so many of us still do not understand such a simple, yet profound concept as this? It is defined in the Declaration of Independence, right after... "All men are created equal"

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Initially all equal. Conceived, gestated and born equal as babies…

I don't think you understand the meaning of the statement. It's blatantly obvious, but I don't expect much from this crowd.

The phrase refers to rights.
