It's a widely accepted modern myth in our computer-driven, technological age that people today are in some way more advanced than people of thousands of years ago.
The biblical picture is that man has always been man. He has the same emotions, cares and needs today that he has always had. He has always been as curious about his world as he is today. The biblical measure of man is not technological, but moral.
Most of these points are difficult to prove. However, occasionally modern man discovers ancient evidence that reveals amazing technology and inventiveness.
Why does the makyo do that? The first scientific paper on the subject was published in 1877. Modern scientists have studied the mirrors using the most sophisticated metal analysis methods known. Yet, they have not been able to figure out the mirror's secret. That nameless Chinese inventor who designed the makyo centuries ago was a genius, indeed.
Man is ever curious and inventive. However, the true measure for each of us centres on the forgiveness of sins that has been won for us by Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary.
