You are wrong, all the way down the line. Why did you take refuge????What have you done with it????You are correct in that it doesn't make you a official Buddhist but if you want to continue on the path to reach higher teachings and studies, it is essential that you take refuge from a qualified teacher and make connection. If not, you are going no where. So be care what you write here especially if there are new people coming on this line. If you think that Buddha in his time did not give refuge, then you are incorrect. Go back and read your history on the life of Buddha.
