You can post some link to a wingnut site, but the Earth is not alive. It does not have the properties of a living object. That nitwit site you linked to proposes a theory as in a dubious, fanciful guess.
No where does that link show that Earth is alive.
I thought that link might get the point across, but clearly, it didn't.
Do you have any idea how much bacteria is in every square inch of dirty? How many trees are infested with dozens of microcosms that rely on another to live? There's an organism, its mass equivalent to an adult blue whale, that grows out of the earth. It's a mushroom. A MUSHROOM. Or a very large network of mushrooms, to be exact. And these mushrooms play host to other miniature ecosystems, chains of organic life that feeds in giant circle, benefiting an entire community that lives inside the very earth.
We wonder if we're alone in this universe...we're not. We have plenty of company, right here with us.
Again, nothing you state shows that the Earth is alive. It's not.
The earth might not technically be alive
You can't admit 2012 s a failure and now you can't admit outright that the Earth is not alive. It is not.
I can assure you that I know more about the variety of life that lives on Earth than you. Your errors show that to be the case.
There is a huge difference between life and the substrate on which it lives. A plant in a pot does not make the pot alive.
2012 wasn't a failure. Do you know how many children were born, how many weddings, engagements, graduations, promotions, vacations, retirements, holidays, dances, kisses, and laughs happened? Lots. Lots and lots. The world may be dark and grim, but people are still managing to find the occasional ray of sunshine. But if the human species doesn't change its ways, those rays will be choked off. The only reason nothing happened is because you, me, and everyone here failed to make something happen.
That doesn't seem to be the case at all.
No, but you keep dumping Windex in that pot and the plant will die.
Are we arguing about the fact that 2012 didn't bring any catastrophes, or the necessity for change?
