Born a peasant

Christopher Perez

born a peasant
united all tribes of his people
conquered neighbouring empires
ruthlessly dealt with arrogant Persian shah by invading his empire and killing millions of his people
offered mercy and the option to peacefully join his empire, but if you resisted, the skulls of all men, women, and children in your city would be stacked into a pile outside its smouldering ruins
his conquests connected the East to the West, increasing trade and exchange of technology (including gunpowder), which would forever alter the history of the world
managed to spread his seed to the point that 0.5% of all people on Earth (and 8% of Central/East Asia) share his DNA
revered in Mongolia to this very day, where Mongolians often refer to their country as "Genghis Khan's Mongolia", and to themselves as "Genghis Khan's children"
...
his actual name was Temujin... but everyone on Earth, centuries after his death, refers to him by his title, Genghis Khan, which literally means "Supreme Ruler"

We are all Mongolian.

I don't see the big deal. I always refer to Hitler as Fuhrer and Kim Il-sung as the Eternal President, even in casual conversation.

Peasants weren't a thing among nomadic tribes, since they didn't work the land. I guess shepherds are the closest thing to them.

I wonder if there was a similar figure involved with Bronze Age collapse. Massive migrations of nomadic tribes destroying everything in their path wasn't really a concept invented by Genghis.

Genkhis Khan before Jebus Christ
doubtful. We're talking about religion that shaped the entire planet and is the only one to ever leave this planet.

Genghis Khan shaped Asia. His impact in the westernmost regions of his empire (today's western Russia, Belarus and Ukraine) while definitely nothing to sneeze at during his lifetime and maybe a century after his death is completely negligible today. So really we're talking about Asia proper and nowhere else.

Most influential religion wouldn't even be Christianity. Probably Islam or Buddhism.

They were the only force capable of seeing through the trickery of the Jin (you can argue their deceit and cunningness where on par with the on modern day jews) and overpowering them.

cont.

I'd even go as far as putting Jesus of Nazareth as THE most influential figure to ever live.

You're deluded. Neither Islam or Buddhism ever left their region of origin.
Most influential culture is Western Culture. And the religion of Western Culture as well as the sole reason why it's even treated as a single culture is Christianity.
And soon Christianity will not be limited to the countries of "western culture" because Christianity in various forms sees an uprising in China. Chinese soon might become the largest group of Christian people.

Jesus was just a crazy cunt that got lucky though.
He only really had an affect because of what people thought of him way after he died
Genghis was unironically one of the greatest leaders ever.

Geghis Khan =/= Asia.

I didn't say "Asia was irrelevant" you numbnut. I'm just saying that Genghis Khan, as a figure was nowhere near as relevant as forementioned Jesus.

The main reason for Europe advancing came from Asia (printing press and gunpowder)

printing press
The printing press was invented in the Holy Roman Empire by the German Johannes Gutenberg around 1440.

Gutenberg improved the printing press with mobile metallic letters but the printing press was still around before then.

Fascinating. The Greeks really respected the Egyptians and Persians and even tried bringing them into their origin story.

Hmm you're right. It seems that China also invented the printing press but they weren't lucky enough to have it coincide with the discovery of the America's.

Where did their sudden greed and bloodlust come from though?

do nothing for centuries except STILL being fucking nomads, in fucking nowhere, literally the filth of humanity, bronze age people were more evolved than that thousands of years ago
suddenly decide to conquer the world and be convinced you are able to do it, YOU of all people despite having almost no culture, no inventions, no real history, no ideology
it almost fucking works and only a miracle saved Europe and Japan

Are the Mongols the biggest proof for East Asian superiority? Would the Mongols, Japanese, Chinese and Koreans colonize the fucking galaxy if they united?
be born to a mother which ate grass and drank animal blood to survive
end up dining from plates of pure gold, surrounded by majestic architecture and make literally the kings of the world and millenium-old empires your bitches
be only country which defeated Russia
rape so many fucking women to forever alter the gene pool of humanity
Literally the most alpha man who ever existed, and really likable because he didn't invent a fucking religion and didn't brainwash people with this bullshit, only with the power of his charisma.

He was the son of a chieftain of a nomadic horse people clan. He had a political marriage secured for him. He was very impressive, but he didn't rise from the VERY bottom as you seem to claim.

Shamans where highly regarded within the nomad tribes of yore, one shaman predicted his rise to the top of mongol society and the same shaman once the prophecy was fulfilled plotted to overthrow his rule.

Asher Stewart

Having a few shamans who tell you what the mountains want and how to harvest the forces of nature is not the same as organized religion like Islam or Christianity, which is literally cancer which doesn't fight evil, oh no, it teaches that acts which would be unthinkable for a normal human, are normal because "every is a sinner, the first human sinned too" and that you can still go into heaven for even the most barbaric acts as long as you pray for forgiveness.

How can you even compare the two?

Well, on my defense you did say religion and thus i took it as a generalization on all religious practices; Shamanism also falls in this category so it is logically correct given the previous assumption.
