in a godless universe rights do not exist. That is another reason that so many want to disprove God. That way all rights and laws are under the authority of man.
I'm not sure what your belief is since you say "IF God exists" and then say "Scriptures which I believe in". But if you do believe in Scripture and therefor God then it should be plain to you that there are certain rights that we have bestowed on us by God. There are two commandments that all commandments hinge on and likewise there are two rights that all other rights hinge on and those rights are the Right to Life and the Right to Property. These are upheld throughout Scripture.
There are no inherent rights when it comes to man made things though.
