Let's just say many of the majorly well-known religions that are practiced nowadays originated from Asia.

You're missing the point, Lance. Stardale said that almost all religions come from Asia, which is wrong.

that is my point. Arabian sub-continent is hard to define to what continent belong. ans Arabian sub-continent is a place from where Islam come from.

((Slowly but surely, this is becoming a debate which isn't really supposed to be.))

I take the mistake that it isn't really supposed to be almost all, but like sora said, many of the majorly well-known religions that are practiced at present originated in Asia. As for the issue of Istanbul being in Europe or in Asia, let us just leave at the fact that Constantinople was built on the ancient Greek city of Byzantium on a peninsula in the straits of the Bosporus. This waterway is regarded as the  traditional dividing line between Europe and Asia.
