Name one universal moral. It has to be something that is always true under all circumstances. (I can think of a few that *I* think qualify. But there will be people who disagree even with those.)

Under your definition ("what people believe is right") there are no universal moral obligations.

If God exists, then there are universal moral obligations, in that HE obligates all humans to follow them.

If there is no God, then your position is certainly correct.
