To be more precise, naturals come from the actual nature of the beings 
involved.  In other words they are based in reality.  I don't think 
reality requires God.   If in reality human beings have certain critical 
characteristics dictating that they best interact with one another (the 
only domain of rights) in certain ways and not others then these are 
rights inherent to their nature.  It will be difficult to claim that 
human beings have no particular nature in reality that is relevant to 
the proper way for them to act towards one another.
