I can see a million opinions and arguments over the question - Is Buddhism older than Hinduism? The trouble is most of the disputes are baseless and devoid of any study and references. They are also influenced by one’s sentiments and religion biases.
Without going into history, archaeology and reading ancient texts, people believe Hinduism is older than Buddhism. People are carrying baggage of religion and spirituality, hence it becomes difficult to see the question objectively.
Hinduism is a fusion of practices, traditions, customs and ideas from Rig Vedas, Manu Smriti and other 18 contemporary Puranas. It is misleading to confuse Vedic religion to Hinduism. Hinduism did not exist in Vedic age, not in essence.
