It just proved that there is not a definition.
Wrong or confused again. As you showed one page one, tectonic (not teutonic, that is what bratwurst is served on) plates have nothing to do with naming continents. That naming started well before Alfred Von Wegener proposed his theory in 1915. If a plate defined a continent, we would have well over seven.
It seems that you are the confused one , since I just showed the evidence of how the tectonic plates don't have a basis for denomating continents as you and QuesterX (specially her) stated.
The difference with QuesterX is that she is no trying to win nothing here.
She showed her intelligence admiting how wrong she was and how we all are trying to learn something.
But you tried to mockered on me just because you have an obsessed idea with me, and before I posted about the tectonic plates you stated this --->" It seems that when our amigo was an exchange student on LI, he missed third grade Social Studies."
It is arbitrary. There is no way to scientifically resolve the issue.
If you think so , then you keep on denominating just North and South America.
You don't have any educational /scientifical/historical /geographiacl basis to do it. Then you are not well educated in that issue.
By the way, how do you spell aluminum? Aluminium?
Another arbitrary decision?
It is not relevant to this topic. I called aluminio.
Are you the same Jeff Corey from Long Island?
You don't need to answer this one. But I understand you more.... your position.
