Ancient Romans and Technology (Part 2 of 2)

Did the ancient Romans know something about modern nanotechnology? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

As we saw last time, the sixteen-hundred-year-old Lycurgus Cup changes colors depending on which way light passes through it. New research has discovered that the cup even changes colors when liquid is poured into it. The cup might have displayed many different colors depending on what sort of beverage was poured in.

As one science website puts it, “Researchers are just now, all these years later, learning about such color changing properties of materials with embedded nanoparticles. The hope is that these properties can be exploited to perform chemistry or medical tests cheaply and quickly by displaying different colors under different conditions.”

Creationists need not wonder how the ancient Romans knew about nanotechnology. No matter how far back you go in history, the ingenuity of man points to the even greater ingenuity of his Creator!
