I don't view "Mother Earth" as being tough. Instead, I view our planet as being incredibly lucky -- a statistical anamoly among planets. Of course time is on the side of the chaotic forces of the Universe. Logic tells us that it is only a matter of time before a killer meteor crosses the Earth's orbit. Or maybe it will be the eruption of one of our planet's super-volcanoes; i.e. Yellowstone that will be our death-knell. My own personal favorite is the eradication of all life on the planet because of gamma ray bursts from the collision of a binary neutron star a mere 3.000 light years away. Any way you slice it, we are certainly lucky (or maybe Someone is watching out for us?)
