"Hinduism" didn't exist until 1829. It is a blanket term for the innumerable systems of religious and philosophical thought and practices of India. There is everything from monotheism to panpsychism to atheism and everything in between. To call all of that a single religion stretching back thousands of years would be like saying every tribal religion in Africa forms a single religion called "Africanism".
It simply doesn't work like that.
This idea that "Buddhism comes from Hinduism" and that "Hinduism is older than Buddhism" is a product of poor European scholarship that unfortunately has been passed down. India itself recognizes the existence of a "Hinduism" which even by law encompasses Buddhism.
In any case, Hinduism is not older than Buddhism because Hinduism as an entity, even as shaky as it is, was invented in the 19th century.
So, your statement here...
3- The concept of kalpa, universe destruction etc are original from hinduism, it seems that buddhism is just using them.
Buddha utilized the cosmological terminology of his colleagues, but his proposed theory was different.
You're allowed to use the mutually accepted vocabulary of others without necessarily agreeing with them.
