And tell me why do you separate North/South America and Africa/Eurasia? they're both connected by land, or at least they were until people decided to cut them in half so ships could pass through. But you could still travel on foot from the eastern-most tip of Russia all the way to the Cape of new hope in South Africa, then come back up and go all the way to Spain without ever getting on a boat if you so wanted, and likewise in the Americas you can walk all the way from Alaska to the southern tip of Chile (if it wasn't for the deadly rain-forest in the way) without getting on a boat, so really where do we draw the line of "continent"?

If we define continent as being a "large landmasses separated from each other by oceans" then we can't really include Antarctica, because after removing the Ice we reveal it for the archipelago it really is, the largest island in which is smaller than Australia. So how large is continental large? should Greenland be a continent? how about Madagascar?

If we go the geology route and separate them by their plates then we get even more unhelpful lines as that increases our continent count to 12 (Antarctic plate, Australian plate, Eurasian plate, South American plate, African plate, Middle Eastern plate, Indian plate, Caribbean plate, Pacific plate, Nazca plate, Scotia plate and the North American plate).

So basically there is no "right or wrong" number of continents, at least not until we can agree to some universal definition of what defines a continent. Since we can't even properly define a planet much less something as vague as a continent good luck with that.

The seven-continent model is usually taught in China, India, Pakistan, the Philippines, parts of Western Europe and most English-speaking countries, including Australia and the UK
The six-continent combined-Eurasia model is mostly used in Russia, Eastern Europe, and Japan.
The six-continent combined-America model is used in France and its former colonies, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Romania, Latin America, Greece, and some other parts of Europe

Ours in all of my schools across the US was:
-Europe
-NA
-SA
-Australia
-Africa
-Antartica
-Asia (with Russia as part of Asia)

There was this one post a couple years ago that got ppl wrapped up in a debate over whether there was 5/6/7 Continents, with 5 being a Geo-political division, 6 combining Europe and Asia, and 7 having Europe as seperate.

It totally depends whether you're defining continents by tectonic plates or by geo-political and cultural boundaries.
The continents were first defined by the Romans where two provinces Europa and Asia were immediately either side of the Bosphorus strait in Constantinople (now Istanbul). These came to be known as the European and Asian regions of the empire. Also the province containing the Carthaginians (now northern Tunisia) was called Africa and this led to the area south of Europe being referred to as African regions.

Strictly speaking you're correct that there's no significant geographical boundary between Europe and Asia, so it's perfectly valid to lump them into Eurasia, however it's historically traditional, usually more useful, and perfectly applicable to separate Europe and Asia for many purposes.
If you're going by tectonic plates then the Middle East and India ought to be separate individual continents too.

Eastern Europe has been heavily influenced by Eastern Russo, and nomadic(Turkic, Urals etc) peoples. Also what does "eastern european in cultural grouping" mean exactly. I feeling that you mean they are lumped in culturally with Eastern Europeans.

there are different cultural groupings.

western european,which has heavily influenced us and canada as well, eastern european, which is basically slavs and such (finland is a mix between the two) and then there are the more unique cultures in asia like india,japan,china(influenced by eastern european and western european but still different) african cultural groups,south american cultural groups and so on.

aka the cultural groupings is basically a group of cultures that are similiar to one another so much that they can be said to be from the same cultural heritage. in europe this can be seen the easiest since we have been interacting with one another for the longest of times.

this is also extremely evident in finland( my home country) due to our unique situation after world war two, where we were balancing between soviet union and western powers, trying to be more west european while still bowing down to soviet union. so we basically show signs of both eastern european (amis culture,our cities etc) and western europe (our goverment,college culture,citizen benefits, etc)

Do me a favor and name the continents please.
Because my list is:
North-America
South-America
Australia
Eurasia
Africa
Antarctica
Of course this may vary by where you were born and taught I guess. But this is how we were thought back in whatever grade it was..5th maybe? Any borders you can draw between Europe and Asia are arbitrary because they are one landmass.
