western hemisphere?[edit]

How exactly is the "new world" the western "hemisphere"?

"Western Civilisation" comes from the old world, it is Europe, and it comes from the ancient Greeks on the Western side of the Mediterranean.

Earth has two hemispheres, on either side of the Equator, the North and South.

The only way the America's are the "western hemisphere", is from the United States deluded idea that they are Europe and the founders/protectors of western civilisation. Also their religious fanatics often think christianity is the founder/protector of western civilisation, even though it's an Eastern, or Middle Eastern, mythology. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 110.146.136.111 (talk)

No, it's not a term made-up by delusional or fanatical Americans, religious or otherwise. See Western Hemisphere and Eastern Hemisphere. The terms have nothing to do with Western Civilization. - BilCat (talk) 03:35, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Central America[edit]

Any objections to adding Central America as a subcontinent, in addition to North America and South America, to the Etymology and Naming section? I will add this reference as well http://central-america.org/ User:Luislema (talk) 21:33, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

The terminology section for this article should not have any other language than English. This is the English Wikipedia, and there is a lot of language in this section is not English. That should be removed by definition of common name. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:CCD8:AB0:A881:41E8:C7E0:51B0 (talk) 00:42, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

It's awfully hard to discuss the names for the Americas in other languages without actually mentioning those names. This is not the same thing as using the English word "Spanish" to refer to "español" in lists and normal prose. - BilCat (talk) 03:14, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

So the question was using non English on the English site. To be technical this is correct. This type of terminology is incorrect here as by definition of common name here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.56.11.140 (talk) 13:40, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

I agree with your statement that this is the English site, but that would be a lot of work to change of that information. Why go through all of that trouble to change something that really does not matter.
