Bleh! But if we are going to de-rail here, there have been 6 supercontinents, and possibly seven that we have evidence of. The history, and possible future of supercontinents

RE: How many continents are there?
I was taught: Australasia (Oceania), N. & S. America, Asia, Europe, Africa, Antarctica. Along with the Indian and Middle Eastern sub-continents.

I like to use a 4-continent model. Afro Eurasia, America, Australia (Australasia/Oceania) Antarctica.. Mostly because I don't get most of the divisions, they seem unnecessary.

Though, I will I will reserve judgement on the poll.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Check your source brah.
I believe you took that from wiki. It says 5% is rock. But what it is referring too is coast line, 5% of the coast line is rock.

This is the map you should be looking at:

All the green is above sea level.

Huh? You criticized my source, and the used the same source? Eh, whatever....so your map shows the land under the ice, and the green is what it above sea level but it is still below ice. It isn't exposed land.

Parts of the source is what I meant.
Same source, different parts. Like different chapters in the same book.

So what it's not exposed? You can still walk on it, you can build on it, you can travel on it etc... Only the ice sheets melt away.
Hell, there is roughly 60 people on Antarctica living there for several months as we speak.

The point of a continent is that it's a large land mass. Antarctica is a large land mass that isn't near or part of any other land mass. So hence it's a continent.

How did you not know Antarctica had land? seriously?

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

I always won because I would sit on Australia and let my friends beat the crap out of each other while I built up my army slowly but surely.

Then... I would blitzkrieg them.

My friends caught on after a couple of games, though. They started teaming up on me : /

RE: How many continents are there?
And the correct answer is more like 8. The definitions being used seem to be ones of convention. The more precise answer is look at the tectonic plates.
Eurasian
Arabian
Australian (includes India)
Antarctic
North American
Caribbean
South American
African

Funny as a kid I've been taught of 7 continents.

North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Antarctica, Australia, and Europe.

In that case, let's make one called Broken Pangaea.
