Yes, but even the "weight of the world" isn't a really value. The planet has a certain mass but the weight has to do with gravity. If you are pushing on the entire planet, then there is no gravitational force because it pulls inward. The planet "weighs" nothing unless you are at the center of the planet holding it apart somehow.
