    […] Blog post about Continents […]

  • Jim 2 years ago

    I can’t believe it. This is the most misleading article from a geography teach I haven’t ever seen. The definition of continent is exactly the opposite.

    There are really just 4 continents in the world:

    Afro-Eurasia
    America (North and South combined)
    Antartica
    Australia

      I think this quote says it all: “This is the most misleading article from a geography teach I haven’t ever seen.”

      Sorry to hear you didn’t actually see the article.

      In my opinion, there would be just three large enough landmasses whose continental crusts are independent

      – Euramerafrasia (Europe, America, Africa, Asia, sans Madagascar and Iceland)

      Eurasia and Africa are connected by the Sinai peninsula.
      Eurasia and America’s continental platforms are connected by the Bering strait, whose depth is never more than mere 49 meters.
      Madagascar, Iceland, and lesser islands not laying upon the continental platform do not belong to the continent.

      – Sahul (Australia and New Guinea)

      Australia and New Guinea are conneccted by the Arafura Sea.

      – Antarctica

      africa
      eurasia
      south am.
      north am.

    I believe in only 4 continents. AfroEurasia, the Americas (as a whole), Australia and Antarctica.

    • Justin 1 year ago

      Believe what you like, but “continent” = continuous land. That ain’t Australia or Antarctica.

      • James 3 weeks ago

        Your argument ignores the fact that the Americas are also a separate landmass. If Australia can’t be considered a continent because it is isolated from other continents then nor can the Americas. Therefore Eurasia/Africa being the biggest continuous continent is the only continent.
        If you include the Americas, what’s your justification, their size? You have picked an arbitrary size limit then. What is it based on?
        Australia not only has it’s own continental shelf, it has it’s own fricken tectonic plate: https://earthhow.com/7-major-tectonic-plates/ As does Antarctica.
        God help your students if you pass of this nonsense as an education.

    Oh no! Another blow to the status of my beloved country, Australia. So not only are we a small economy with an even smaller population, now we are just a dirty big island and not even the biggest one. Please don’t tell our Prime Minister. Our past ones love to swan about the world stage pretending we are an important and influential country. That’s why we end up in so many awful wars/conflicts that we shouldn’t be in and most Australians hate. 😀

    This is the most scientifically illiterate thing I have read all week. There are 8 lithospheric plates that house individual continental landmasses. Eurasian, North American, Antarctic, South American, Australian, Arabian, and Indian. You should probably take a Geology 101 class, as your understanding of a continental plate (continent) and an island is significantly flawed.

    • Justin 2 months ago

      Hi Bryan,
      Thanks for your kind words. If you look up the word “continent” you’ll find it doesn’t have its origins in plate tectonics. So your argument is incontinent. See what I did there? 🙂
      Cheers,
      Justin

    I believe there are four continents. America, since I believe that North and South America are connected. Afro-Eurasia. Europe is not a continent, it’s connected to Asia. Eurasia is connected to Africa. Australia, it’s not really connected to another continent. Antarctica, which is kind of an exception since there are no countries on Antarctica.

    i know only 4 continets and that is Eurasia, Africa,n.America And S.America.
