    SOME CLARIFICATIONS & CORRECTIONS:
    ► There are many viewpoints for what counts as Asia (some even consider Australia to be part of Asia...it's not), so this video is less about what's 'right', and more an overview of different perspectives.
    ► There's a lot of debate in the comments whether to use 'Australia', 'Australasia' or 'Oceania' as the continental terminology. I won't get into the details here, but Oceania doesn't come close to being a "large, discrete, continuous mass of land" (it's also more-so a region) so geographically it's hard to call it a continent. But geopolitically, it's another story.
    ► I used the term 'Sea of Japan', but I know many Korean people prefer 'East Sea'. Right or wrong, I just went with Google Map's terminology.
    ► Likewise, many Arab countries would prefer 'The Arabian Gulf', rather than 'The Persian Gulf' that I used.
    ► I pronounced Timor-Leste wrong. It's said 'Timor-Lest-ay' like 'cafe'. [Edit: apparently I was right?]
    ► I also pronounced 'Weber' wrong, crap. It's said 'Vay-ber' not 'Web-ber'
    ► Most, but not all, of Yemen's Hanish Islands is considered part of Asia.
    ► Different countries teach a differing number of existing continents. Many parts of the world teach 7 continents including China, India & most English speaking countries. Japan, Russia and Eastern Europe go with 6 continents. And France, Italy, Spain & Indonesia go with 5.

      I am an anthropologist, and I happily agree with you. The most haplogroups were muted or evolved in Asia, most probably in India.Not just Indo-Europeans but Uralic people too, they are linguistically related with Dravidians. During the Last Glacial Maximum Age, only India was left tropical and rest of world was full of Ice sheet. Yes, Malaysia and Indonesia have many prehistoric cave paintings.

    • Isaac Bakan
      Isaac Bakan 12 days ago

      +Paulo Cunha I agree. I mean, Europeans anlre genetically and culturally different from other Asians but not any more than South Asians, East Asians, and Middle Easterners are drim each other, and all those places are considered Asia.

    • Paulo Cunha
      Paulo Cunha 12 days ago

      There are no such things Asia and Europe separately but only Eurasia geologically and geographically saying. The concept of Europa which is supposed to originated in ancient Greek maps is likely myth. It's most probably that the story of Europa was fabricated after 11th century because of Crusade! Linguistically and genetically saying, the modern Europeans are relatives of Indians. They reached to Europe only in Copper Age. If Africa was the cradle of humanity then Asia was the cradle of ethnicity and civilizations.

    6:24 I don't like your "split the difference" reasoning! When in doubt, go with tectonic plate boundaries or contiguous landmass, with contiguity taking preference. Should have been the Lydekker Line. The Sunda plate exist between the Asian plate and the Australian plate.

    Either way, the islands Japan owns would either way be in Asian territory

    This video was too long. Halfway through it, I got hungry so I left it playing and went to the kitchen to fix my self a sandwich.
    But then I found out that I'm out of mayonnaise so I went to a store. There, I saw the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my whole life. But I'm really a shy person so I took up a three-year personality development course so I can introduce my self. She was very friendly and all, but unfortunately, she had a boyfriend. So I said, all good, I'm a mature person.
    I want the best for her and I harbor no illusion that I am the best person for her and she seems happy with her boyfriend, so I did not bother her anymore. But we kept in touch and we became friends and I got over my crush on her. Then she broke up with her boyfriend. One night, we drank some alcohol because of the alcohol, I told her she'd be fine and I wished her well. I still think she's the most beautiful woman in the world, but like I said, I am over my crush on her. It was, bu then, five years since I first saw her.
    Besides, I was quiet happy with the friendship I developed with her. It was more important than a crush. So we kept hanging out, drinking, having coffee, and all. I had a girlfriend, she started dating other guys. After a couple years my girlfriend wanted to live some other life without me in it, so I said, okay, I want the best for you and I want you to pursue your happiness.
    My lady friend and I drank alcohol over it, and she gave me the same advice I gave her when she was in that position and I became okay with the breakup immediately. But we were really drunk, so she spent the night in my apartment. I only have one bed, so you know what that means: She took the bed and I slept on the couch.
    But on the couch, I really can't sleep. Something was bothering me. So I tossed and turned for about three hours, then I finally can't take it anymore, I stood up and went straight to my room where she's sleeping.
    I approached the bed, gently sat on it and I reached for her soulder to pull her closer to me. She stirred and woke up. She asked what's up. I told her you know, the first time I saw you, I was watching a video and just left it plsying to get myself a sandwich then I went to the store to get some mayo and then I got distracted by life and I forgot to finish the video.
    She said you know what I've been wondering about a weird noise in your night drawer. So we open the drawer and low and behold there's my phone and this video still has two minutes of playtime on it.

    Like I said you have no idea of what you're talking about. Stick to educating on your part of the world. You know nothing about North East Africa. If you actually did the research you would know what areas they renamed. I gave you the names of just 3 people go research. Go learn the actual truth to stop promoting colonial lies, which believe it or not is heavily associated with religion to make the deity white so the world bows to them while they rob the resources.

    This is an observation I noticed amonst non white ethnic groups.
    Why do we value foreign input over own? You mentioned a bunch of regions that have clearly been renamed by European invaders.
    This is not an attack but why do we as ethnic people except names given to us as if we didn't have names before.
    Examples:
    Because of Alfred Russel Wallace who probably learned about the differences between animal species of the different regions from the actual natives there. Which is usually the case. They named the region the Wallace Line. Pretty much saying the place had no name before he got there!
    The same for the Weber Line and the Lydekker Line. Name after Europeans because there were no native influences. Obviously, They knew the land better than the natives and we except it, Wallacea, LOL...
    Christmas Island, really!!!
    British Indian Ocean Territory a native name!!! LOL

    Kento Bento. You have no idea of what you talking about concerning the north east african peninsula.
    It's obvious you need educating about that region.
    There is no such place historically as the Middle East. The region was colonized and renamed by Europeans in Euro War 2 (WW2) they actually started the process earlier.
    3 main individuals finalized it. Sykes, Picot and Winston Churchill. Sykes a British Diplomat and Picot a French Diplomat also Churchill, look up Balfour Decloration.
    Russian Leader Lenin describe them as colonial THIEVES!
    Sorry, the so-called Middle East is north east Africa. The proof is a lot of blacks live there not just brown people regardless of what western media and other western influenced media shows.
    Europeans are known for killing and stealing what's not theirs and renaming it what they want.

    The border of asia and africa and the Mediterranean is the area that follows the line from the persian gulf through the dead sea. That is where the continents collided and have merged (or are splitting I'm not totally sure). You can see the valley that goes through that region and follow it north. I think it may be a tectonic plate boundary.
