Is the Earth considered a living being?

Most any definition of life would not include a planet as a living being; only the organized anomalies within or on it would be “living beings”. But we cannot rule out a planet that is technically so organized as to be alive and possible of some sort of evolving replication phenomena.

Note: Earth would be considered a facilitator and harborer of living beings, but that’s about as close as it comes to “being alive”.
