seest the mountains and thinkest them firmly fixed: but they shall pass
away as the clouds pass away: (such is) the artistry of Allah, who
disposes of all things in perfect order: for he is well acquainted with
all that ye do.” (Quran 27:88)
mountains are considered fixed. Fifteen hundred years passed, geology
evolves, we realize that Quran is absolutely correct on the fact that
the mountains are passing phenomena. Himalayas
will pass, Mount
will pass because the mountains rise from the motion of the plates of
the earth against each other and then they erode away.
mountains are moving because they are made of small particles we can
not see this movement, it is the movement of the particles inside the
mountains. God can make the mountain disappear on the Day of Judgment.
passage in the Book of Knowledge Encyclopedia on Mountains states,
“A belt of rocks across the flat central part of Canada
from northern Quebec
to south western Montana
(a very large sector of land), a flat area of rocks marks the site of a
mountain system that existed approximately 2 billion 7 hundred million
years ago. The oldest mountain system yet recognized on North American
this proof. The more science we learn, we become more able to
understand the Quran.
