Where do American atheists believe that unalienable rights come from?

Answer by Jim Ashby:

We're all, allegedly, created equal. But, when I look around, I see people who are more handsome or stronger or smarter or charismatic or whatever than I am. Some people even have an embarrassment of genetic riches. Clearly, we're not all created equal in any way . . .

. . . except one . . .

. . . our humanity: everything else pales in comparison. Simply being human demands respect. Respect, at first, is endowed without reservation . . . we all start off equal. What you do with that endowment is up to you.
