Alexandros, this philosophy of "equality" is not only a major contributor to the social chaos now being perpetrated in the US and abroad, it is an insidious deception. Oh, sure, it sounds so good, doesn't it? I mean, who initially doesn't think that everything should be equal? That is, until one starts to contemplate what this means, where it eventually leads to, and what the source of it is. You initially stated in your original post that the Adam and Eve story was unbelievable, but if your look at the basis of the scripture it is exactly what has occurred all throughout humankind. Satan's jealousy of God's position and his own inequality, led to his rebellion and fall. Satan's deception of Eve and then Adam, that they could be "like God" or "equal", led to their curses and banishment. All of this ensues with the initial rebellion of the Sovereign God and creator and has no where to go but to spiral down to the pit. It is my opinion that the Lord blessed the framers of our Declaration of Independence and US Constitution with wisdom and excellent judgement. Listen to this preamble "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, in that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Notice that the unalienable rights of equality are life ( the right to exist, even for the unborn), liberty (this is freedom to choose your own destinies and goals as well as freedom of religious beliefs) and the pursuit of happiness (living in security, freedom, and love). These are the foundational tenets of the original founders. This can never be attained by racial and sexist affirmative action programs or the theft of the rich to give to the poor or shiftless.

True Judeo-Christianity does not use force and murder or domination, but freedom to worship and choose God. One cannot say this about Islam or the religion of Marxism/Socialism/Communism. With the media in his pocket, Hitler was elected, but he became their dictator, didn't he? With the media in his pocket, Obama was elected, but.........
