With the evidence we have at hand it seems as if the Book of Revelation borrowed this common idea from other sources, and it is most likely not a new prediction of the future.
If you want me to post information about other mythological systems which have a beats with seven heads I'll be glad to do so.

I would also like to add this has nothing to do with mythology. The books of Daniel and Revelation describe what the horns and heads are within the same book. They're not talking about literal beasts and dragons. There really is nothing left to the imagination when dealing with the beast/dragon topics.
The Dragon is the same set up as the Beasts, but not of this world.
The 6-continent Americas model is taught in England, Asia and Latin America but, again, it is often taught in terms of the 6-region model. The 6-continent/region Eurasia model is preferred by the geographic community, while the geologic community forgoes local differences by classifying based on tectonic plates. It is especially used in Russia, elsewhere in Eastern Europe, and Japan, which often refer to the 7-continent model as a Western cultural convention.
