  • You could say

    Nothing is dead everything is composed of atoms and electrons etc even decaying matter. Everything is in a state of motion or vibrAtion should we be asking does the earth have a soul. Since it contains all of humanity and supports us then yes it is alive another conundrum plants are obviously alive but do they have souls

  • Of course it is.

    Yes, the Earth is alive because one of the definitions of living is in actual existence or use. It is also a living, growing thing. It constantly changes, and therefore it must be alive. If it were not, it would just be a plain rock that was never different from the way in which it began.

  • Yes. It is very much alive.

    If we put the natural disasters in forms that affects us humans, it would be; drought-dehydration earthquake-seizure typhoon-nausea. All these mentioned are signs of something right? Maybe the Earth is trying to tell us something. That we are hurting it. But the Earth needs us and needs our help. We started hurting our home our only one and us humans are the only ones that can reverse the effects.

  • Yes, the Earth is absolutely alive

    It's very alive but not in a scale that we humans could feel and touch in our mean. Imagine the Moon is a living entity and watching the Earth, on an event of a huge meteorite nearly impact the Earth, what will we humans do? We would fire a rocket to redirect the meteorite (or destroy it) in order to save our life on Earth. What would the Moon think, is the Earth alive, has it just defend itself from external threat. If the Moon has got something like microscope and be able to look at us. Does the Moon think we are just cells of the Earth, and we act on the favor of the Earth. Living creatures on Earth die and be born everyday. Is that similar to us producing dead cells and grow new cells everyday. We has our circles. We wake up, we eat, we go to work, and we sleep. Also there is women's circle. The Earth circle around the sun, and around itself. If somehow our cells get out of our body, could they are alive? If all of our cells are dead, could we are alive? So the Earth and all the creatures on Earth. Sorry for my bad English, is not a native speaker. In my humble opinion, the Earth is definitely a living entity.

  • What are plants? What are you?

    What are plants? What are we? We are all life. Earth is life. You and I are the same, we are life. We all come from particles the exist on Earth and all are eventually recycled. All of us together, our consciousness' all combined as a whole is Earth.

    Can I prove it? Hell no, but it's one interesting view of our world.

  • Yes Of Course

    Do you really think that you were born from, and are being sustained by, an inanimate "dead" object??? Think about it. The repetitive movement of the Earth creates repetitive changes in its atmosphere (weather). This weather generates electricity(lightning), which has the power to change the molecular structures of most substances it comes into contact with. Lightning creates and links chemicals, and can break them apart. We are made of many of these same chemicals. Believe it or not, our bodies do practically the same thing in order to support our internal metabolic processes.

  • It really depends...

    It depends on whether it is the earth structure itself or life on earth. It also depends on what is the definition of 'alive'. Although I define earth by it's uncommon property: life. So as different species are dependent on one another to form ecosystems that are interconnected (I like the Gaia theory) to create the greeny blue planet we live on, the earth is alive.

  • Look around you to see!

    Yes look around you to see breath taking world and its living things on its surface and below. Listen to it, feel the energy wich comes out and create life by itself. I sometimes believe that world itself is the god!! Imagine you kill all living things on surface. After million years or maybe less, we will see same life forms coming to life again and again and again....

  • The earth isnt alive

    The Earth is not alive. A living thing is dwelling, it reproduces. Does the Earth reproduce? No. Insects reproduce, plants reproduce, humans reproduce, and Earth does not. Another thing is that living things breathe. Earth does not breathe, not does it have a system. Living things breathe, humans breathe oxygen and plants breathe carbon dioxide. Earth itself is a rock that is trying to condem itself by Ericsson and weathering. Living things don't erode not do they try to condem themselves. Living things move. Earth moves because of the gravational pull towards the Sun. But that doesn't mean it is living.

  • The Earth is not alive.

    The Earth is a planet and it is not alive. The Earth itself is a mass of rock and minerals. Although it is home to a lot of living things, the planet itself is not alive. The fact that the Earth is the only place in the universe known to have life does not mean that it itself is an organism.

  • The earth isn't alive

    It is just a big rock. If you say Earth is alive then you say that Mars, Neptune, Jupiter, and the rest of the Planets are alive. There are living things on the earth. But if the earth is alive then what's keeping the earth alive? What will make it die? Why will it die?

  • The things on it are alive, not the earth itself.

    The earth is a rock. Just one, giant, round rock. Rocks aren't alive. Trees, bees, whales and snails are alive, but not the giant rock floating in space itself. Something that is non-living with living species on it does not make it alive, it makes it covered in life instead.

  • Isn't it obvious?

    Alright. I see someone said Earth is alive because it's changing. Really? So if i put a iron wrench into water and let it rust. Is it living? No it is certainly changing, but not living. I also see people say, "The Earth is growing". No it isn't. Science has provided evidence to the tectonic plates theory that completely debunks the idea.

  • It is obvious.

    You have to provide evidence that the earth is alive, and that is not possible as the earth shares no qualities living things do. The earth does not move on it's own, does not reproduce, respond to stimuli and can not produce or consume energy. Saying the earth is alive is like saying a greenhouse is alive.

  • Rock is not living.

    The answer is as simple as that. Rocks and minerals are not living things, so the earth is not living. The earth will not die in the same way that a living thing does. The earth does not grow like a living thing does, and the earth certainly does not respire. The three things I've just listed are three things that every living thing does and needs to do to be considered a living thing. Since the earth doesn't do any of those things, the earth is not alive. To conclude, the earth is not alive and this is obvious.

  • Rocks and minerals aren't alive.

    Would it be right to say that metal and dirt is also alive? Because that's really what the earth is. A bunch of elements that have collected together due to the laws of gravity. What's "alive", however, are the things on the earth, the creatures that dwell in it and call it home - so really, the earth is not alive.

  • The question is; Is the EARTH alive.

    The question says "is the EARTH alive?'' Obviously the planet isn't alive. It is the living species ON planet Earth that makes the Earth seem alive. Clearly the Earth is not alive. Some may say it is moving. That is true however, the gravitational pull and there are other factors that make Earth moving but the Earth is definintly not moving by itself.
