Mountains

Geology - Advanced

Have roots.

The highest point on Earth is in the Himalayas at Mount Everest 8.8 km high. It turned out that this mountain has roots about 250 km deep.


The larger Asian plate forced the Indian plate deep into the mantle - a process called subduction - sinking it at least 155 miles (250 kilometers) down under the surface, a new study in the May edition of the journal Geology suggests. This plunge is double the depth of previous estimates.

Mountains have roots. This was known recently, however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered.


Quran 78:7

And the mountains as pegs


٧ وَالْجِبَالَ أَوْتَادًا


Pegs are used to fix tents... they have some parts above ground and other parts below ground. So the Quran correctly claims that mountains have parts below ground.

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that mountains have roots?

The Quran contains scientific knowledge that could not have been known 1400 years ago. It ranges from basic arithmetics to the most advanced topics in astrophysics. You are invited to go through those miracles and judge for yourself.
