It's literally held together by broken fragments that constantly grind against each other yet holds together rather firmly.
What would be more appropriate than the forum header 'Fragile Earth' though?

The earth is fragile. Slight changes in any of the planet's ecosystems would result in gigantic changes to the earth. The earth is fragile and it must keep its balance.

Agreed, the earth is super resilient.
Our current environmental state is less so.
The environment can change drastically for many different reasons .
But earth has been around growing life for billions of years, during times when the environment state was such that none of the life we see today, including humans, would be able to survive it.
So yeah, the earth will continue on as it always has.
Whether or not humans will be able to survive the changes is another question.
My hope is that humans learn how to control the entire environment of our planet so that we can keep it at whatever state we wont.
