Jumping in the middle here ... you are not being consistent. You say gravity is universal because it applies to you whether or not you believe it does. Good so far.

Then you equivocate and say that there is no universal morality because you don't believe it exists.

But if there is such a things as universal morality that applies to everyone (in the sense that everyone is accountable to it), it doesn't matter if you believe it or hold the same tenets as it has. What matters is if it *applies* to you.

What am I missing?

You are missing the definition of morality:
A set of beliefs about what is right and wrong.

A set of beliefs cannot be universal unless everyone believes it.
