Asia should be split up into several sub continents, Based on a geographical, Climate and ethical differences in the region.

Okay, You apparantly have some stuff to figure out about this. First, Who is "we"? If you, Like I, Are from America, Then you should know that "we" can't just go and split up another continent. That is probably up to Asians to decide.

Second, Why do we need to. I don't see any point. There are already 7 continents, So why do we need more?

I should have clarified my original stance, This is merely a hypothetical question about whether Asia should be split up into other continents. It makes sense based on ethnic groups of the region of Asia as it is already a very large continent with lots of diversity and more differences than similarities. Middle Eastern culture is vastly different than the cultural similarities that are shared by countries on the Eastern side of Asia such as Japan, China, South Korea, North Korea and several others. As to whether the countries in Asia actually want to is an entire different topic. But I believe there is an argument to be made for separation and reforming of the area to more accurately reflect the region.

You do have a good point, However, Why only Asia if not other countries?

Here in North America, We have the U. S. A, Canada, And Mexico, All with extremely different climates, People, And cultures.

Mexicans mostly speak Spanish, Canadians speak English and some French, And Americans mostly speak English. Mexico is much much warmer than Canada and the people of Mexico have many different cultural holidays and traditions from the U. S. And Canada. The Canadians are led by a Prime Minister, While Americans and Mexicans are led by a President.

So, My point is: doesn't every continent have large differences from country to country? So why does Asia need to be split up if no other continents need to be?

Continent, As you can probably guess, Is related to the word continuous.

Continents are based upon tectonic plates, Not ethnic groups, Other geographical features, Or any other factor.
