Who or what process put people on earth? From what source do natural rights come? If we choose to not argue about the process by which we came to be, we can absolutely agree that some process has placed us here, and that process exceeds the authority of any current human-created authority. Even when we humans create authority, it is an extension of some process created within us by the source, and so it stands to reason that the very same source-flow of authority is available to all people at all times. Our natural rights come from an authority beyond the petty rule of man.
