12 Mistakes of Buddhism

Okay, first understand that I believe these 12 things are mistakes of Buddhism. But maybe Buddhism is right and I am wrong

Remember I am a Humanist, not a Buddhist. So from a Humanist perspective these 12 things are mistaken.

The following is probably wrong: belief on Gods, devas, Buddhas, Bodhisattvas ghosts, heavens, hells, merit, karma, rebirth, gurus, and scriptures.

Now clearly a person who rejects such things as doubtful at best and false at worst, is not a Buddhist.

But I think Buddhism has much to teach. So I am not anti-Buddhist either. I try to follow the evidence to the best means to human flourishing.
