There's a small argument I've got going on with a Mongoloid. When was Europe thought of in terms of a whole continent? Meaning, when did we as a people begin to look at the world less selfishly- before, Rome would conquer some land and would call that new land Rome. Assyrians called theirs Assyria after conquering Rome the emipire, not Europe the continent. Mongloids called Russia whatever the Mongolod called his Kigdnom. Not Eurasia. Its only in times, say, like Napoleon's that terms like "Europe on his lap" make any sense. I want to know when exactly did men begin to sit down and think in terms of that continent over there- that's Asia. This one, the Americas. That over there is Africa and so on.
