The Story of Creation (5) - Tectonic Plates, Mountains Formation, Orogens, Subduction & Mountains Roots..


1.    Tectonic Plates and Mountains Formation
2.    Mountains to reduce Plates’ motion:
3.    Orogeny (mountains origin):
4.    Mountains roots
5.    Sub-duction of Earth Crust:
6.    Mountains and Rain Cycle
7.    Mountains Rising from below

In the following sections, we will discover more spectacular signs of Mountains creation as described by Almighty God ALLAH in his Holy book Al-Quran.

1.    Tectonic Plates and Mountains Formation


Quoted from Wikipedia - Plates Tectonics:

[The lithosphere is broken up into what are called "tectonic plates". In the case of the Earth, there are currently seven to eight major (depending on how they are defined) and many minor plates. The lithospheric plates ride on the asthenosphere. These plates move in relation to one another at one of three types of plate boundaries: convergent, or collisional boundaries; divergent boundaries, also called spreading centers; and conservative transform boundaries. Earthquakes, volcanic activity, mountain-building, and oceanic trench formation occur along these plate boundaries. The lateral relative movement of the plates varies, though it is typically 0–100 mm annually] The Tectonic plates of Earth are shown in the below figure:] [1]

The Story of Creation (4) – Earth Creation and its Distinguished Geology, in Science and Quran..


1.“Earth Expansion” vs. “Plate Tectonics Theory”
2.Earth Spherical Shape
3.Earth as a Carpet
4.Earth Geology of “Beds and Mattresses”
5.Earth being Stable for Human
6.Earth being reciprocal (gravity)
7.Earth Great Trench:
8.Earth Core is the heaviest, Earthquakes before Volcanoes
9.Lowest Point of Earth
10.  Reduction of Earth from its sides

Previously in part (3), we talked about the phases of Earth formation till it reaches the current state and what was created on Earth on each day of its first universal week.

In this post, we will talk about how it was created and the wonders of Earth Creation that were pointed by Almighty God ALLAH in his book, the Holy Quran.

1-   “Earth Expansion” vs. “Plate Tectonics Theory”

Although the most known theory that Earth was developed into its current form by plates separation, but the new theory is much more amazing which says that Earth was expanded in volume, and because of such growth the plates were divided in its known shapes.


Quoted from “Earth Expansion Theory

[Decades before space vehicles showed that generally the planets of our Solar System are covered by uniform shells of surface matter, that the Earth is the exception, Hilgenberg had the insight to think that the Earth should have had in the past a complete shell of continental rock covering its surface.] [1]
