    No, I don't believe all individuals are created equally. For example, IQ is generally thought to be a trait from birth. It follows a normal distribution, so not all are equal in intelligence.

    But I DO believe that all men are created equally in deserving an opportunity to succeed at life, whatever success is to them personally.

    No, the people in Montana are more equal than the people in Texas.

    At least in the U.S. Senate.

    We all have differences, but that is not really what I am after, though you did hit it with your last sentence.

    I do believe all are created equal, just as our Constitution, and the Bible states.

    We're talking creation here. Theology. The study of Theo.

    Not to mention this passage to King George (With Love) from the Founders....

    ...[The Declaration Of Independence] "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..."

    ;)

    Created, yes. There is no partiality with God. (I wonder what atheists and agnostics think?)
