A Muslim's Response by Shaahin
this is to answer:
--Mountains and Earthquakes.
--regarding earthquke and its relation to these verses of quran
i have to say that, for the thousandth time, this misunderstanding
of quran happened to you (and some others) because of reading
translations in english instead of the arabic text!
when quran says montains are there to prevent from shaking, the
"surface" is not meant, but the "whole sphere earth" is the
matter here! without mountains the revolutional movement of
earth around its axis would'nt be "smoth", and it would "shake"
as n the case of a nonhomogeneous roulette. when earth was in
its original liquid state, these mountains appeared in exactly
right places (according to laws of physics, fluid dynamics, if
we want to be accurate) to prevent it "shaking" (as described
above). so these mountains are there to make the earth an overall
"homogeneous" object to be able to have a smoth (non "shaky")
revoloution around its axis. this is an undisputeable "fact",
scientifical fact, now, and i can provide you with exact mathematical
and physical explanations in this regard.
as a further explanation, one can observe the revoloutional movement
of asteroids. they have never been in liquid state so the "mountains"
on their surface do not adjust this rotational movement and
therefore thier spinning is "shaky". that would cause very strong
and wild, at the same time periodical, "tides" that makes living or
even sticking to the ground on them so hard, if not impossible!
this fact has nothing to do with earthquakes!
