Things aren't invented "by" America.
America can't invent anything.
It is a name given to a particular section of a giant landmass made of rock.
Also, it has no arms.

if the USA isn't called America for short, than we might as well call China "the people's republic of" and spain "The Kingdom of",

The United States is a prepositional phrase. You want to bitch about how it's wrong, go back 300 years and do it to the founding fathers.
#222 to #215 - fractalius (02/14/2013) [-]
That logic is backwards.

United States of America
People's Republic of China

Saying America == Saying China
Saying United States Of == Saying People's Republic Of

We say either USA, United States, or America. They usually just say China.

"Invented America"   
   
I believe they (colonists) decided to leave the British and the British were trying to suppress America's formation.   
   
That's not inventing.

you're correct. and i don't know why people thumbed you down. no one invented america but the colonists

But to not be English they had to "invent" America.

They didn't even invent it, they founded it, you can't just make a several million year old continent.

America is a country.

Unless you're the kind of person that thinks "America" isn't an acceptable name for the USA in which case **** off, it's called colloquial.
User avatar #163 to #161 - Blargosnarf ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
America... refers to the continents of North, Central and South America... all of which can be called America. The United States OF America was founded by the colonists, not invented, and the Americas were founded by the 17th century explorers.

I will concede that it is the official definition, but we all know what we're talking about and the context of America is clear in this thread.

Democracy
Computers
Internet
Television

All stuff that America claimed to invent, Democracy was invented by the ancient Greeks. The first programmable computer was called Zuse Z3 and was built by a German called Konrad Zuse. The internet was created by Tim Berners-Lee, who was British, and Television was invented by John Logie Baird, who was Scottish
#139 to #63 - miaandvinny (02/14/2013) [-]
I find that a lot of people mean a full democracy when they say America invented it. Athens did not allow women or foreigners the right to participete. Although I think Finland was the first country to allow women to vote in the democracy....
#243 to #139 - hewhoepicfails (02/14/2013) [-]
If memory serves me correct, the first country to have women's suffrage was New Zealand in the late 1800's.

Ah, it's been a while since we've learned about that. Thank you. I think Finland was 1915 or somewhere around there.

-Using that logic you can say that every country was invented by Africa since the first humans came from there (ie: America was invented by the UK, the UK was invented by Rome, Rome invented by Greeks and Mesopotamians that migrated to Rome, Mesopotamians and Greeks came from Africa).

technically...
User avatar #309 to #304 - IceViper (02/15/2013) [-]
right, just like technically england invented america when really america is a conglomerate of many different races and ethnicities formed throughout history. I would hardly say that England invented America. A better way to put something like that would be Isreal was "invented" by the Zionist States in Europe along with some participants in the UN when they literally took the land from Yemen to make Israel a country. The US was formed throughout history, not spontaneously invented like that.

dude its /b/, "America" technically originated from English colonists.

User avatar #84 - scorcho ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
Most major inventions can't really be credited to a single person or country. For example, many people claim Karl Benz to be the inventor of the modern car, when actually a bunch of german engineers (f.e. Gottlieb Daimler, Wilhelm Maybach, and Siegfried Marcus) were working together on that project. And their work was probably based on earlier versions of an internal combustion engine, so you can't really say "Karl Benz invented the car" because it's not entirely his work.

True and the concept of aeroplanes was actually originally English but the Wright brothers were the ones who actually built it so why argue over it?

The industrial revolution was started on the large part by Britain, the whole basis for building the USA's wealth came from technology invented during that time.
