For me, there are no universal moral values. In our real life, people think a certain thing is good or bad just based on their own perception and cognition of it. Like everyone has a different code of ethics, this means that people cannot reach a unified moral value in this world. Aside from all the mathematical theories and the scientific theories, there is not even a moral standard in the world.

I agree with you about that there are no universal moral values, but have you considered why there is a similarity or pattern (base line) for each of the different values and that even if there is vary in the value, they are also very similar and resemble each other to an extent.
I agree with what you say about how everyone will have their own standards and opinions but do you think there are any situations where everyone will agree?
But for it to be a moral fact doesn’t it have to true in any place and time?
Do you think that because people have different codes of ethics, they cannot reach a unified moral value? maybe everyone has a different code of ethics, but some their code is the same as other people.
Why do you think there is no moral standard in the world? How does it related to question Is there universal moral value.
I agree, but even if a moral standard existed it would still interfere with some people, this can be understood from the history of our world, for example, when black people were considered the lowest race, and if the majority thought so, this means that their opinion was a contradiction of moral values
