"The great religions of the world, the system of laws that govern the planet, are all based on universal truths of right and wrong that are based on what humanity inherently knows is the correct and incorrect way to behave."
I don't think there are universal truths. Also there is no "correct" and or "incorrect" way to behave. Behavior varies within different cultures. What is acceptable in one culture, is taboo in another. Try reading the book, "Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe, which is a good example of the clashing of philosophies and "accepted behavior".
