Why is that there are poor and there are rich, normal and disabled person, tragic life and happy life. Things seems to be not equal so are we really created by God equally?

I have talked to many mothers who would beg to disagree with you about who is controlling whom, lol. Nevertheless, I understand your point.
There aren't going to be any answers from simple observations, that's going to answer whether or not we're born equal..First we would have to know why we're here, because if it we're to face certain trials then we are all born equal.
I guess you might have a point 1) if that is why we are here and 2) we are making the correct assumption about Ken's use of the term "equal"; he seems to be focused on the here and now with his question.
And now, as it would, you get to the definition of God. Yours is something different from the Universe, mine is the Universe. So while we can both say the same thing in terms of image and likeness, we mean entirely different things.
And so God created the baby with bones in his legs and another baby with no bones in his legs (recent news story of how the latter is overcoming his infirmity, or should he since that is the way God created him?)
But what have you say regarding how those things are assembled coming out of the womb or factory as to their capability to reach the same goals which are obtainable for each to their own species?
Given you have "born" at the beginning of Act 2, and the question wonders about being "born equally", and given that is impossible, then I seriously doubt each is born with the same potential.
Some people worked harder in their life before birth and have an advantage over those that didn't work as hard. We still have this life to prepare to meet God. Everyone still has the same eternal potential if you look at the big picture.
I don't buy into reincarnation, & at the same time i do know I'm not my body or mind, but i feel i haven't been reincarnated or lived any previous lives..If things we're fair that would mean the same, which would mean boring.
I'm not talking about reincarnation. In your past life you weren't something else or someone else. You lived as you. Just in the presence of God and without a body.
I would argue that while based on a Creator, the DOI was not based on Holy Scripture. In fact, Ben Franklin changed the words "we hold ... to be sacred and undeniable" to "we hold ... to be self-evident" specifically to take religion out of it.
@My Esoteric, Of course you would argue that because you love to reconstruct history and have no respect for the truth.
Tested for what and to what purpose? Why would everyone be given such widely different starting points; have different goals been assigned?
If everyone didn't have different starting points everyone would be the same, which would be boring & people would soon work out what their supposed to do & would cheat!lol..Tested to see which stance we take, are we good or bad & do we c
I agree with this. We need bad in the world so we know what good is.
I am not sure the world revolves around us. Who cares if our lives are boring or not? If you believe in the kind of active God Christians do, then He wants you borrig, that is what you will be.
