yeah well, you forgot to include this little tidbit
Pyrrho was a Skeptic who created the school named Pyrrhonism. He too wrote after his stay in India that nothing really exists, but said that human life is governed by convention. These two statements are purely Buddhist - showing the connection between the religions of the ancient Greeks with Buddhism. It also shows how attractive Buddhism was to other religions at the time
Which means that Buddhism was a thriving religion in India and beyond and not at the brink of extinction as you suggested.
No it wasn’t it was almost dead and was dying out until the Greeks converted to it and developed it and spread it
Can you not see the contradiction in your argument.
the Greeks changed Buddhism and spread it - that is the fact
IOW, they plagiarized it.
