Do people know that Americas and Asia are one continent landmass!!!!!?!?!?!?!? (history)?

If they want to count Greenland and the Caribbean as part of the Americas, then they are not using the water separation system, but the continental landmass system

    All the continents were once one landmass millions of years ago, called by those who talk about tectonic plates "Pangaea".

    The continental drifts are discussed in the Times World Atlas, the National Geographic World Atlas, and the atlas by Rand-McNally, so almost every public and school library in North America has held the information for decades. I learned it from my grade four geography textbook in the 1960s.

    All depends on an interested person opening the atlas or a few clicks on an internet search engine.

    And isn't California on a plate separate from mainland America, crunching over or pulling back from the San Andreas fault?
