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
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, 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.
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 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.
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....
When we say that everything around us is in the state of motion with respect to the earth(part of law of inertia), then we can also say that earth has life with respect to us....! When earth can support life it is also alive as a dead planet cannot and can never support life.....
Of course the Earth is alive. Is it alive and thriving with all kinds of species, environments, cultures of all kinds and has been this way for a few billion years. The planet goes through cycles, just as humans do, and because of our placement from the sun, the Earth is able to be a lively planet able to sustain life.
The Earth is very alive. From the babbling brooks to the rocks and rills and hills, things are changing all the time. Leaves fall and the set on again in the spring. Grass turns brown and then returns to green. Trees grow from seeds and walnuts set on each year. The Earth 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.
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.
The earth is a rock. Rocks aren't alive. This is basic stuff, people. There are living things ON the earth, but the earth itself is not a living thing. It doesn't breathe. It doesn't reproduce. It has no anatomy. It has no cells. It is clearly not a living thing.
I think that earth is nonliving because scientifically a lot of scientists have discovered that earth's nonliving. A lot of people think earth is living just because that we live, eat and breath on this planet, just because we live on this planet does not mean that earth is living.
There are a lot of comments saying that the earth is an organism, that's not true at all. How could the earth be an organism if it's able to BREED, EAT WHEN HUNGERY. Think about it every thing that is living does these thing, WE DO THEESE THINGS. This is my reason why the earth is not living and will never live. The END
Yes but no yes bout no yes but no what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what what w hats what what what it's it yes or no.
In order to be alive, you breathe air. Humans breath air, plants breathe air, and animals do as well. But the earth doesn't have a way to put air inside itself. It also needs a way of reproduction. Whether it is by eggs or by the animal itself, it has to reproduce. The earth clearly doesn't reproduce itself. That is why the earth isn't alive. It doesn't mean it's dead either, but it isn't, by theory, an organism.
Earth is not alive it does not have cells it does not need to eat or have energy it does not have any organs it has the right conditions for life it does not mean it is alive it is just a ball of rock that orbits the sun it look up the definition alive you are not going to get ball of rock
Thousands of fossil evidences have suggest, that, the earth is majorly in a chaotic stage: temperatures raises and falls, oxygen levels varied like rollercoasters, and life is CONSTANTLY CHANGING.
A Single Living Organism does not change in composition of genes and cells. Life on earth DOES change in species and genuses. A living organism have a HOMEOSTASIS, and earth is constantly changing in every aspect through eons, adn does NOT show a HOMEOSTASIS. Check the rate of background extinctions to see the answer. Also, An Living Organism must have a HABITATABLE EXTERIOR ENVIRONMENT where it's familiars CAN INTERACT WITH each other. EARTH DOES NOT HAVE an EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT, Nor it HAVE FAMILIARS TO INTERACT WITH. An living organism WILL BREED. And how you think earth can POSSIBLY BREED? So, i have to come with a conclusion that the "SCIENCE" behind the "GAIA HYPOTHESIS" is WRONG, and the earth is not, never alive and it can NEVER be alive.
The earth is made of rocks stone and lava inside it so it is not alive and the earth can't eat it has living things on it but it is not alive and if is alive then It die when then the moon crashed in it so it is non-living or dead ether way this dead so stop Being jack asses about it and start using your brain to help make or improve are health or stuff or even help invent something or help make a way for people to make cells to stop ding by finding the DNA strain....
The con said several things about how the actual earth isn't alive and how the things on it are alive, but that doesn't make the planet alive. The pro just asked questions to the con about whether or not he/she believed that the earth was alive and that it "felt" alive, which didn't prove that the earth is alive. Plus, the earth is not alive, that's just stupid.
