Oceania

Am I the only one... I had never heard of the continent Oceania. We were given a new dictionary and it listed it as a continent. Did a very quick search on goggle and found that there are actually 4-7 continents depending on different things. I had heard about Eurasia, but not Oceania. Praise God t...
