Geography classes in the states teach it that way but many people outside the United States refer to North, Central and South America as "the Americas" or "America"

The division between Europe and Asia as two different continents is a historical and cultural construct, with no clear physical separation between them; thus, in some parts of the world, Eurasia is considered the largest of five or six continents.

The amount of filth in there is indescribable. I have gone to other parts of the US, and it felt like I was not even on Earth anymore. I live here because even with the terrible enviroment and monotony, the people are nice, there are some nice things here, and I can make a good living (200k p year).
Were you in the South perhaps? I could understand your statement if you were down there. They believe the earth is around 6,000 years old down there.
