The Qur'an on Mountains

A book entitled 'Earth' is a basic refrence book in many universities around the world. One of its two author is prof. Emeritus Frank Press. He was the science advisor to former us president jimmy carter, and for 12yrs was the president of the national academy of sciences, washington,DC. His book says that mountains hav underlying roots. These roots r deeply embedded in the ground, thus, mountains hav a shape like a peg
This is how the Qur'an has described mountains. God has said in the Qur'an : {Have We not made the earth as a bed, and the mountains as pegs?(Qur'an 78:6-7) }
The history of science tells up that the theory of mountains having deep roots was introduced only in 1865 by the astronomer Royal,Sir George Airy.
Mountain also play an imp role in stabilizing the crust of the earth. They hinder the shaking of the earth. God has said in the Qur'an [ And He has set firm mountains in the earth so that it would not shake with you, Qur'an 16:15 ]
Likewise, the modern theory of plate tectonics holds that mountains work as stabilizers for the earth. This knowledge abt the role of mountains as stabilizers for the earth has jus begun to b understood in the framework of plate tectonics since the late 1960's
Could anyone during the time of the prophet hav known of the true shape of mountains? Could anyone imagine that the solid massive mountain which he sees before him actually extends deep into the earth and has a root, as scientists affirm? Modern geology has confirmed the truth of the Qur'anic verses..
