Life is survival prone when it is successful.
99.99% of all species that have appeared on Earth are extinct!
Humans have survived in place of other life forms which didn't. It is the capacity to abstract inferences and concepts and then attach a vocabulary which has kept him on top. Humans can transmit the entire lexicon of their acquired knowledge specifically by means of vocabulary (which includes math).
Human beings don't have to inherit genius or a superior physical body the way animals do to survive. Humans can transmit data outside the individual's personal experience to equip them for survival. Man can learn by reading words, engaging in conversation/ debate/ instruction. Animals must actually experience new situations and adapt to go beyond genetic programming. And what the individual animal learns cannot be passed on to future generation. (Despite what LaMarck believed.) .
Man RELIES on his ability to abstract information from reality around him. The UNdoing of man has been his error in confusing imaginary information with actual data! Superstition is the bedrock of man's error. The mechanism of superstition is the way it is transmitted from person to person. The virus of superstition is mysticism.
Not to sound like a broken record but here it is in a nutshell:
Man must grasp how reality works to survive. Man must learn real facts about the universe. When man replaces trust in his own rational judgement with faith in the mysterious knowledge of some authority figure he falls prey to the error of a hijacked mind.
It happened to us when we were Jehovah's Witnesses!
We took an imaginary world view as the ACTUAL facts about life and tried making our life work using those fallacious misrepresentations.
The source of our phoney facts was a supernatural source represented by mystics who gained their mysterious power through some sort of invisible connection to deity. (The annointed "just know" they have God's spirit). As in all cases of Mysticism, the governing body wrest power away from others by holding themselves up as the channel we must go through to achieve a superior life. In this case, it is the BIBLE which is the magic wand which this magisterium wields like a weapon of great power. The hold on man's mind is illusory--yet--it is fear and a damaged consciousness which makes it possible. Religion damages man's confidence that he can think for himself.
So, more specifically......NO. I don't accept that man has any built-in values to guide his life at all. They are learned through the mechanism of thought from either the enviornment (trial and error) or abstraction (forming concepts) or instruction (accepting the facts or opinions of others). Beyond that there is nothing but dumb luck.
