but I see no evidence they are based on ancient cultures.

They are not based on ancient culture, they are based on biological behavior which was shaped by evolution.

My moral conventions however are based on some very old teachings.

Nope. Your moral conventions are based on subconscious predispositions, same as everyone else. That's why atheists, christians, muslims, and buddhists all tend to share many mores. You can claim very old teachings all you want, but the teachings were shaped by the brain chemistry, and that was shaped by the environment over millions of years.
