[SOLVED] Should Europe Be Considered A Seperate Continent? It barely makes the subcontinent standard as it belongs to the Eurasian plate (where as Arabian and Indian subcontinent are on different plates!). The European subcontinent should be merged with Eurasia and treated like so by all standards. But instead of teaching children in school there are only 6 continents, the lie of 7 continents is told. Why is Europe so strongly classified as a different continent? It might have to do with White or European Supremacy but I doubt (Europe is to liberal socialist for this!).
