What am I?

Some call me sphere
Some call me flat
I am a organism according to some intellectuals
Some say I am replaceable with others but for most I am the only one
People love me
I give the best but people use it against me
I am older than some but younger than many
I am more than what meets the eye
What people give me I will do, I do not do anything on my own

Note: after you find the answer in your explanation write how each line is related to the answer.

Edit: In response to @goodguy5 comment.

u got it correct. But a few mistakes. in the "I am a organism according to some intellectuals" I expected the Gaia theory which was proposed by James Ephraim Lovelock a genius and agreed by other scientists. the 2nd mistake is "I am more than what meets the eye" I meant to say even if we are in space we cant see the whole Earth. We on earth see only a small part of earth now. And last but not least "People love me" I mean like companies and more people going green.

Earth?

Some call me sphere

The earth is round

Some call me flat

Flat Earthers exist

I am a organism according to some intellectuals

The concept that the earth itself is a living breathing organism is somewhat of a metaphor for how the earth changes

Some say I am replaceable with others but for most I am the only one

Talks of terraforming Mars, or some other planet as a backup have been in science fiction for decades (if not longer), and some people view it as a viable future.

People love me

I mean, here is da erf. round? anyway I love it

I give the best but people use it against me

The earth has many resources, such as fossil fuels, and we harvest and utilize those resources, unfortunately producing A LOT of pollution in the process

I am older than some but younger than many

The earth is neither the youngest nor oldest planet

I am more than what meets the eye

This one is a little complicated, but I'm guessing that it's because there's the mantle and the core underneath the earth's surface? Not counting the depths of the ocean

What people give me I will do, I do not do anything on my own

The earth is a canvas. Life grows on it, but without life, there is no atmosphere; it would just be a rock

An earthworm

Why

Some call them roundworm, some call them flatworm

We generally call them earthworm but we know they are organisms afterall.

Some replace earthworm with fertilizers since earthworms are mostly used by farmers to convert dead materials into manure and utilizing it as nutrients for plants.

Farmers love them

Earthworms don't do any harm but many people see them as harmful insects and use pesticides.

They are obviously younger and older than many

People generally overlook the usage of earthworms in day to day life.

Give earthworm dead and decomposing material and they'll do the work for you. Otherwise they would have no uae in the environment.

  • $\begingroup$ A flatworm is not a earthworm. They are very different. Also a round worm is microscopic. They are not the same thing. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ They can be confused if someone is not from the biology background. Flatworm, eathworm, roundworm, tapeworm are all different but many don't know the difference. You can argue on the same issue with the person above. $\endgroup$
