A more moderate Islam as influence from central Asian and Persian Islamic empires Muslims develop guns first due to contact with China No whabbis etc as they are a result of ghazali reactionaries response to Mongols
>>578837 Wahabbism developed centuries after Mongol influence in the Mid East in the Arabian peninsula at that. It was a small movement against local customs of going to shrines, tombs etc. that didn't gain traction until the rise of the Saudis. Your other points are true though.
>>578936 This. He also fostered the homogenization of the Middle East by effectively destroying the Nestorian Church.
>>579862 Han China had already fallen. Genghis Khan mostly faced off against the Song and Jin dynasties in China. The better question is what would have happened if Muhammad II of Khwarezm wasn't an idiot.
>>578706 Genghis Khan was literally fighting another man who was also unifying the mongols. This nomadic macro-confederations were not a rare thing limited to the huns and the mongols, those are only the ones we know well because they arrived to Europe in a time that was auspicious for them.
Now, I don't want to enter a debate about big man history or undermine Genghis abilities, but equating Genghis non-birth with the mongol conquests (or something similar) never happening is just wrong. Maybe we would have a less succesful horde, maybe not. The mongolian alphabet as we know it would probably not exist, but that's hardly influential outside of Mongolia proper.
kabebs wouldn't get fucking ravaged, gunpowder would take longer to get to europe. i feel like the plague would still spread from traders instead of the mongols byzantines could get squashed earlier i cant decide if this would delay the renaissance
