...because I don't think that the Buddha was wrong....

Buddha was not wrong. But your views are not those of Buddha.

"Don't think that the Dhamma lies far away from you. It lies right with you; it's about you. Take a look. One minute happy, the next minute sad, satisfied, then angry at this person, hating that person: It's all Dhamma..."

Definitely not. Hating "that person" is not Dhamma. Hating people is adhamma. But discussing dhamma & admonishing others that require admonishment, with equinimity, is Dhamma.

...And one day we maybe gain right view and move the wheel of Dhamma for the first time. *smile*
And one day Hanzze maybe gain right view and move the wheel of Dhamma for the first time.   ;D *smile*
Therefore, Ananda, engage with me friends and not as opponents. That will be for your long-term well-being & happiness - MN 122

sure *smile* but a little dislike is ok, or is that also not a Dhamma?

Quote
"One tries to abandon wrong view & to enter into right view: This is one's right effort. One is mindful to abandon wrong view & to enter & remain in right view: This is one's right mindfulness. Thus these three qualities — right view, right effort, & right mindfulness — run & circle around right view."
