Why Are Europe & Asia Considered 2 Different Continents?
Arent conitinents surrounded by a body of water on all sides?

So technically, Europeans and Asians are virtually of the same make up...they just look a bit different due to geography. Just like west africans look different than Ethiopians.

Check this pic out...Tell me "Europe" being considered its own continent doesnt sound retarded. There is no defined border. Thats like saying Mexico is a continent.

Re: Why Are Europe & Asia Considered 2 Different Continents?
ummm.... you could just google it no?

Conventionally, "continents are understood to be large, continuous, discrete masses of land, ideally separated by expanses of water."[2] Many of the seven most commonly recognized continents identified by convention are not discrete landmasses separated by water. The criterion "large" leads to arbitrary classification: Greenland, with a surface area of 2,166,086 square kilometres (836,330 sq mi) is considered the world's largest island, while Australia, at 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi) is deemed to be a continent. Likewise, the ideal criterion that each be a continuous landmass is often disregarded by the inclusion of the continental shelf and oceanic islands, and contradicted by classifying North and South America as two continents; and/or Eurasia and Africa as two continents, with no natural separation by water. This anomaly reaches its extreme if the continuous land mass of Europe and Asia is considered to constitute two continents. The Earth's major landmasses are washed upon by a single, continuous world ocean, which is divided into a number of principal oceanic components by the continents and various geographic criteria

Either way 'Europe' isnt a landmass of its own. Im not reading all that copy & pasted nonsense. I believe 'Europe' was made into a continent by the elite on the basis of promoting racial superiority.It has no defined boundaries, if you walked through "europe" without a map you would'nt know when you crossed the "european" border into Russia.

Through colonialsim they spoke indo-european. I work with an indian guy, dont get him started on europeans the conversation will never end. But yes, Africa really extends through russia into Asia if were going by land mass. The only thing that disconnected the lands was the suez canal, done purposely to cut Africa off from the rest of the world and give europeans a short cut through the red sea instead of going all the way around through the straits of gilbratar. That single passage(straits of gilbratar) is the reason Egypt dominated the world for so long because there was one way in & one way out.

You are correct OP "Europe" is actually Asia Minor and is not a continent. Imperialist Industrialists who ruled the 19th and 20th centuries made up this bullshit but as the fall away ,as we see now with all their financial corruption, their definitions will too. Personally I don' care about it being called Europe, I just resent it being called a Continent when it is not. This is a form of Predicative Programming or mind control. Just lke this B.C./ A.D. bullshit, that shit is race based and inaccurate since Whites didn't come to power until the trans atlantic slave trade in the 17th century. They have retroactively claimed time. Bullshit.

Europe was stunted by Religion too. It wasn't until reduced the control of the church and invested in literacy that they excelled. As long as the Imam's and Mosque dominate Muslims they will never be real competition accept to tear down civilization because of religion.

Once Muslims separate Church and State they will dominate. Islam owes it's economic domination early on to the fact hat West Africa's Muslim population were not Zealots against science and thought.

Notice how Muslim dominance ceased once the Muslim empires of in West Africa and North Africa fell and the Slave trade began. The Africans were a sophisticated merchant society this is why the Universities at Djedd and Timbuktu thrived.

Arabs and Islam radically declined until oil was discovered and even now with all that oil their populations are kept ignorant and undereducated.

Indo-European was spoken before colonies fucking existed.

Do you know about Aryans?

People spoke Indo-European because it was THEIR language, from Europe to India. Hence why so many words from European countries all the way to India sound similar, because the roots of words is in the language they all spoke at one time.

Not because one colonized the other, that happened thousands of years after the Indo-European language got split into many languages, after the Indo-European people split up all the way from Europe to India.
