Question: Conscious Mountains?How can mountains both be able to "refuse the trust" and "feel fear" as Sura 33:72 says?
Answer: The question is again is there a God and not and is the Quran from God or not. There is a science beyond our science. How can you explain the rod of Moses which is an object became a living snake or the dead became alive and the blind got his vision back by Jesus. Our brain and logistics help us to accept God and the truth of the Bible and the Quran. I do not argue with the contents of the Quran but I use my brain to be sure the Quran is from God. People saw the tree making a crying sound and became silent as Muhammad put his hand on it. If God is able to recreate us again and created the universe from non-existence a lot of unbelievable things are not a problem for God.
33:72 We did indeed offer the Trust to the Heavens and the Earth and the Mountains; but they refused to undertake it, being afraid thereof: but man undertook it;- He was indeed unjust and foolish ;- إِنَّا عَرَضْنَا الْأَمَانَةَ عَلَى
السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالْجِبَالِ فَأَبَيْنَ أَن يَحْمِلْنَهَا وَأَشْفَقْنَ مِنْهَا وَحَمَلَهَا الْإِنسَانُ إِنَّهُ كَانَ ظَلُومًا جَهُولًا
