Well, this is the problem with religious people, they cannot stop their urge to take credit.

Why not? Especially when it's due? Instead of completely erasing all of atheistic thought, Hindu*ism* still preserved them because they had a lot of questions that will recur in every thinking individual. It did not *ban or issue fatwa* against *heretic* atheist thought and questions. Why?

Probably because Hinduism is more bent on orthopraxy and ritualism than on orthodoxy.

(As for the ritualism - just look up why Panini made his study of Sanskrit pronunciation - in order that the liturgies be pronounced the same way forever!)
