A true and practical case in point:

We all know that Mount St. Helens is the crystal-clear example that mountain actually causes the earth to shake. For centuries, Mount St. Helens caused many earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and so on. The recent (2004) dangerous episodes happening in the Mount St. Helens is the testament to the claim that Mountain is the cause of shaking earth and not a stabilizer. This year (2004), Mount St. Helens has been causing hundreds of earth shakings (earthquakes) and volcanic eruptions and dangerous shaking episodes are still continuing. Is there any fool who still can believe that Mountain was created to stabilize the earth?

Truth of the matter is, all mountains had been formed by shaking of this earth in the first place, and i.e. Mountain could not be formed/born without severe shaking of this planet earth, period. Besides, we know very well that, every year tens of dozens of earthquakes happen on earth. Then what is the result of Allah’s promise? Can we believe that, Mountains are there to prevent earthquake? Then why thousands of earthquakes happen every century?

I am sure this ridiculous “mountain story for stabilizing earth from shaking” is perhaps one of the lies of Dr. Maurice Bucaille revealed in his (in)famous book -"The Bible, the Qur'an and Science", which was comprehensively refuted by Dr. William Campbell in his "The Qur'an and the Bible in the Light of History & Science". 

Mountains are never viewed as the stabilizing factors. I never heard or read that any world famous geologist ever claimed that mountains help earth to stabilize or mountain prevents earth from moving/shaking. Actually Mountains are the source of earth’s shaking. Their formation caused and still causes the surface of the earth to shake. Where there are more mountains, there are more earthquakes and more shaking of the planet earth. Any country that has many mountains definitely have many volcanoes and volcanic eruptions normally give rise many earthquakes every year. Consider the earthquake zones of earth. Earthquakes happen 'all the time' and they are concentrated along specific zones, in which mountainous areas are also concentrated. Therefore, claims that mountains are firm and immovable is simply ridiculous and utter lie. Besides, mountains on earth are not proportionally or uniformly distributed every where, i. e. in some areas there are many mountains, on the other area there are no mountains at all.

The Earth itself is revolving about the Sun; Sun and its planets are revolving about our Milky Way galaxy; The Milky Way galaxy is again moving around the center of the Local Group of Galaxies.... etc. So mountains cannot be considered as "immoveable" as the whole universe is moving.

Besides, the planet Earth of ours is the result of billions of years of continuous evolutionary transformation. This planet earth has undergone series of geological change for hundreds of millions of years. There was time when all these continents were together and later they were separated from each other, perhaps that episode caused severe/terrible shaking of the earth. Himalayas were formed when the Indian subcontinent bumps against the Asian plate causing tremendous shaking of this earth. Then why Allah talked about the nonsense of creating mountain to prevent shaking of the earth? Did not the process of creation of Himalayas occur much after the original creation of this earth by merciful Allah?  Why did He lie with Prophet Muhammad that He (Allah) created mountains to prevent shaking of this earth?  

How Islamists make science in Quran!  

When modern science and modern consensus tell us that shaking of the earth is directly related with the presence of mountains and volcanoes in that locality some wishful Islamists claim that actually mountains are there to stop shaking of earth! How is it possible? Let me tell you how it is possible. These so called Islamic intellectuals when dealing religion, Koran and Allah—they immediately lose their all intellects, common sense, and become Allah’s robot only to achieve their ludicrous lustrous life after death. They vow to protect Allah’s Koranic garbage at the cost of their civil and intellectual norms and they start talking all nonsense just to make Allah’s garbage some what meaningful to the readers. They even forget that their weird logic will not be able to convince anybody who is a sensible person and not blinded with faith. Yet they continue to do so only to get lustrous heaven and to save their skin from the hell fire!  

This Islamist used some references which are all from (some other) blind-faith Islamists and some reference only to give structural description of mountains, such as pegging earth. Pegging earth with what? They are unable to give any reference that will talk about shaking or stabilizing earth due to mountain. Is there any world famous geologist who can claim that mountain can prevent shaking of the earth? I am sure no geologist can claim such a lie about mountain.  

Finally, let me make my firm assertion that—mountains and volcanoes are the primary cause of shaking earth and mountains/volcanoes can never prevent earth’s shaking, period.
