Great Yasa, which basically declared him a messiah type guy. It's been a while since I read about him, but I remeber is was kind of like his own 20 commandments. All punishable by death I beleive, although he din't always demand that sentence.

No clue about his religion, but he was one of the first rulers to have complete religious tolerance. Not to be a nice guy, but because it made people easier to control.

I'm catching a show in the afternoon on Friday so its cheap and no one will bother me while watching it. I can't watch movies in the theater usually because if people start yelling or annoying me, I lose my shit.

Fun Svartorm Fact: During Lord of The Rings 2, I made a group of people move because one of them was wearing patchuli oil.

Genghis Khan's religion is widely speculated to be Shamanism, which was very likely among nomadic Mongol-Turkic tribes of Central Asia. Genghis Khan towards the later part of his life became interested in the ancient Buddhist and Tao religions from China. The Taoist monk Ch'ang Ch'un, who rejected invitations from Song and Jin leaders, travelled more than 5000 kilometres to meet Genghis Khan close to the Afghanistan border. The first question Genghis Khan asked him was if the monk had some secret medicine that could make him immortal. The monk's negative answer disheartened Genghis Khan, and he rapidly lost interest in the monk. He also passed a decree exempting all followers of Taoist religion from paying any taxes. Genghis Khan was by and large tolerant of the multiple religions and there are no cases of him or the Mongols engaging in religious war against people he encountered during the conquests as long as they were obedient. However, all of his campaigns caused wanton and deliberate destruction of places of worship if they resisted

Excellent movie, and they even worked in a few of the historical tidbits to balance out the fantasy aspects. It should definitely be seen on the big screen, so don't miss out folks.
