I don’t believe in rebirth and I don’t disbelieve it either. I just don’t know what happens. I don’t know exactly what you mean regarding practicing the dhamma.

Buddhist really don’t believe in anything. It’s the direct experience of Nothingness that they are after, and belief or religion is a something.

Not Buddhist here but I really love Buddha’s teachings on peace.

As for rebirth, not really but you can’t rule it out.
