Since I do not accept the existence of Divinity, I also do not accept the concept of divine cosmic values; therfore it is incumbent upon people to create their own personal values (although a dismaying many choose to adopt whole cloth some ancient memeset or other that claims such divine sanction). It is a stand by which I live my life precisely BECAUSE i see it as true.
