My Question is:
Where do Values come from, if not from a belief in God?

This is the big question of life. You're asking what the meaning of existence is, and I'm not really qualified to give you an answer. But, I would like to add that religion does not escape these problems either.
Let's consider what God really is in terms of the fiction. He's an extremely powerful monarch. He gives people missions in life and punishes us or rewards us depending on how well we follow his rules. Now I ask you, is this really a satisfactory source of meaning?
This philosophy is the ultimate embodiment of might makes right. It's saying that the purpose of life is to follow the orders of someone more powerful.
Why should you revere power? Why should you bend a knee to a being just because He is strong?
What if you disagree with God?
What if you discover that God values things that you find offensive?
Do you still say that He has moral superiority?
Do you still let him define your meaning?
If God is real, then the practical thing is to do whatever the hell he says, because he can make you sorry if you don't.
But, on a deeper existential level, this does not give your life true meaning.

You are taking a Letter Written by a Disciple to an Underground Church Group, as the Valid "WORD OF GOD".. Up The Dosage on your Meds. GOD had nothing to do with it. It is the Spouting of a Follower on Paper for historical reference. Nothing More

The Wrath of God
Ephesians
Chapter 5
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
Let No Man Deceive You
IF THE PREACHERS WOULD START PREACHING THE TRUTH
AND OBEYING THE WORD OF GOD
PEOPLE WOULD KNOW THAT IT IS NOT THE DEVIL THAT IS UPON THEM...
BUT THE WRATH OF GOD.
BECAUSE OF THEIR OUT RIGHT DISOBEDIENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD.
I SEE MANY PEOPLE WITH THE WRATH OF GOD UPON THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES
AND BECAUSE OF THESE PASTORS WHO PREACH SIN IS ACCEPTABLE TO THE LORD..
THEY THINK IT IS THE DEVIL THAT IS TRYING TO DESTROY THEM.
IT IS NOT THE DEVIL THAT PUNISHES YOU FOR YOUR SINS AND EVIL DOINGS
IT IS GOD.

As I read these post I am sad, this is not how to win souls to salvation. It should always be in love that you wittness. When we understand scripture and what God has done for us we should show that same love for each other. Our sin may influence others to sin. I always pray my sin does not influence others to sin, and that my sin does not keep others from knowing Christ.

God is loving and His attributes only gives us a glance of God. We will never fully grasp the magnitude, purity, or excellence of His love. We have a choice to love Him or not to love Him.
God is Omniscient, He knows all things past, present, and future. He fully knows both all things that do happen and all things that might happen. God is Omnipotent, he is all powerful. He is able to do anything He chooses, yet He never chooses to do anything which conflicts with His plan or His character.
God is perfect, he is the measure of all that is pure, correct, and good. All His attributes are in perfect harmony and without contradiction. Godís word shows His compassionate love that is directed to those in need even though they deserve punishment.
Now on the other hand Satan hates the soul and will work in our lives to deceive us into believing we do not have a God that loves and cherish us to the point of sending His Son to die in our place. We can live for eternity because of His gift to us. And the only thing we need to do is accept His Son and repent from our sins. Sins that He says will hurt us. Think about itÖ.sex outside of marriage, causes a multitude of problems. Sexual diseases for one, unwanted pregnancy, and the feeling of pain when the person promise love only to leave. His commandments are not to punish us but to keep us safe. He never asks us to do anything that is not pure, correct, and good.
How many of us want people to think we are bad and unworthy and yet they do not know us. This is how we often judge God. How can we love someone we have not taken the time to get to know. Yet we judge on how someone looks, how they dress, if they are friendly (they may just be bashful). If someone has shared some untruth about this person do we base whether we get to know this person because of some untruth, someone has shared. Yet this is what we do to God.
This is not meant to judge anyone but I love the Lord and I want to share how loving He is and how deceitful Satan is. God never changes He is always the same. Holy and Righteous, True, Faithful, wise, Loving, Perfect, justly wrathful, merciful and Gracious, Infinite, eternal, free (He isnít bound by anything outside Himself. He can do anything He desires, free from any external limitation. He will judge satan and his followers. From reading and studying I know Sin will be destroyed along with Satan. Jesus will put Satan in his place. Satan is a masterful deceiver and wants as many souls as he can win. You see we are in a battle for our soul. Satan make us believe God is not loving that is his plan. I for one will not let Satan have that power over me. The truth will set you free. The choice is yours. Praying you make the choice to accept Godís love for you. John 3:16

I just can't fathom a society that worships an unseen and unconfirmed being. Even more entertaining is watching you folks that worship this unseen and unconfirmed being tell others that their unseen and unconfirmed being is bogus.
Yeah, your one step above the caveman.
