Why think humans have rights…

Why think humans have rights and dignity if they’re products of valueless, physical processes in a cause-and-effect series from the Big Bang until now? The more plausible scenario is that human value and moral responsibility come from a good God who created us as intrinsically valuable, morally responsible creatures. We function properly when living morally. We glimpse something of a personal God in the world’s moral order: without a personal God, no persons would exist at all. If no persons would exist, then no moral properties would be realized in our world.
