      Welcome to RF!

      Semi-Buddhist, eh? Do you mean that you're both Buddhist and agnostic, or you're only partially Buddhist? :)

        I go to Temple when my friends go and partiipate, but don't take it all too seriously. I think the Bubbha had a good philosophy about being happy and meaningful, but I don't belief the rebirth and enlightenment and all that stuff. I would say I am more of an atheist than agnostic -- I am pretty much as sure as it is possible to be that there is no God or gods. Otherwise suffering would not exist

        I pretty much follow Buddhist ethics and ritual and practice (especially mindfulness and compassion) or at least I try to, but there are things in Buddhist teaching that derive from its Indian sources, such as Samsara, rebirth, Enlightenment, the Buddha as anything more than a good teacher, Nirvana, and no doubt others. I am agnostic about karma. I hope that helps.
