As a teenager I said to my grandpa that I was atheist and he told me a story about being in prisoner of war camp and how some scared people that had no religion asked god to help their suffering - guess that's a reflection of social conditioning. I've never been in a life/death situation where I have felt the need to look to a higher being other than to take comfort that close relatives I have lost are some place nice as I emotionally struggle to cope with the fact they don't exist anymore.
Overall I just like to let people be and don't get too het up about "religion" and it's not something I think about really. I just like to follow as compassionate life as possible without preaching my beliefs at folk no matter how much I struggle with their belief system
Not too sure what that labels me as?
