Oh, and yes I should not have debated with a Muslim who agrees killing gay people is the right thing to do, but sadly this person got my goat. :oops:

You'll have to prove that.
*In other words, what is your point?*
No one believes Buddhism brought Islam.

Anyone who voluntarily worships a god which sends people to hell has litle credibility in my book.

On the other hand, I read somewhere, sometime, that after the Muslim invasions of India/Pakistan, those areas that earlier had been Buddhist, were those that most easily were converted to Islam. The reason was said to be that most of the learned Buddhists were concentrated in large centers like for instance Nalanda, so that when these were destroyed, Buddhism no longer had any footing in those districts, and therefore they fell to Islam. While Hinduism, on the other hand, had a more substantial footing at the village level.

I do not know if this is true or not. Anyone who knows?

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
