Are you Asian? If so then you have a pretty good chance of being related to him. He did a lot of, shall we say, "conquering" if ya know what I mean!

And he has r@ped the most women in history so basically anyone in China or Mongolia or whatever Asian country they have a bloodline with Genghis Kahn

Well if you consider the fact that you have atoms in your body that were in his I'd say that's pretty much in the VERY LIKELY column. I believe you probably are both originally from sperm as well

You must have just blown in from stupid town... How could he possibly have the atoms directly from Genghis Khan in his body? Genghis Kahn is dead and the only thing that he could possibly have of Genghis Kahn's is DNA, which by the way is a gene. So he would have to be a descendant to have that...

I'm really not sure what to correct you on first... On a subatomic level you have "cosmic dust" if you will in you that has been around since the Big Bang. Since I'm so new to town I won't bore you with particle physics or quantum oh never-mind. Here I'll make it simple energy can not be destroyed. Your body is comprised of energy most of which has existed in the universe since its beginning. It will be here after you have become dust. Your dust will oh never mind listen to Neil Degrassi on YT

First, the Big Bamg theory is only a theory, it isn't proved. Secondly, particle physics is constantly changing according to scientists. They find new evidence all the time disproving a previous theory. I will agree that new objects must be made of previous used particles, but I highly doubt he has any from Genghis Khan... Come on, you sound intelligent enough, but maybe you should make sure that your "facts" are facts before you bring them out as an argument.

If you want to get real technical, yes, you are because everyone is technically related to each other.

Maybe so, but that doesn't mean he is a descendant of Kahn. Whereas you are a descendant of Adam, you may not be a descendant of Abraham, but instead a descendant of Lot.
Report as
Well technically it does. Considering the fact that we are all descendants of the first biological human (desendants that include khan) then he is, that is, unless if the asker isn't a biological human.

You obviously did not understand what I just said. Let me simplify it for you. You are a descendant of your dad, not your uncle... Lot was a relative of Abraham's and a descendant of Adam's but his daughters were not descendants of Abraham.

Go buy a lottery ticket and see if you win. If you do, you're a descendent of Genghis Khan.

I think more than half of east population is descendant of Genghis khan. I have heard he had a lot of wives. He was bloodthirsty. I don't respect him.

You bring up a good good point. It would be something to not be that proud of or want to boast of. He was an evil evil man.

The answer may surprise you. GK was a prolific ah.. 'father', and at least one estimate is that ~ 1/2 of a percent of all males living today are related to him. don't know much more than this- but I assume if you Google it, you'll find a useful link.
