40:57 Verily, greater than the creation of the humans, is the creation of the heavens and the earth. But most people never know what it implies. [The entire Universe submits to Divine Laws, and so should the mankind. 29:61]
95:4 Indeed, We have created the human being in the best design (and with the potential to grow the ‘self’.)
We can also take 17:70 to mean that man can overcome, be superior to, most of the forces of nature, not just being “better than very many of the created beings, we are certainly not the best”.
What forces will he never overcome? We all must taste death, not being able to travel faster than light speed, ............?
