“We verily created human beings in an atmosphere.” Quran (90: 4)
It has been discovered that the Earth has many layers of atmosphere. These serve to protect the globe from the harmful radiation rays of the sun and to save the earth by burning away the great quantities of celestial debris showering upon it with increased speed. An atmospheric pressure of 14.7 pounds per square inch is maintained, at all times, on every inch of the Earth’s surface (like the pressure in an airplane’s cabin). Without this pressure there
would be no control on stability. Compounded with the high speed of the Earth’s rotation, a lack of atmospheric pressure would cause all on Earth to fly away, drifting into outer space, out of control.
