Dynamite (ENCYLOPEDIA BRITTANICA) The second most important of Nobel’s inventions was dynamite, in 1867. He coined the name from the Greek dynamis, “power.” The basis for the invention was his discovery that kieselguhr, a porous siliceous EARTH, would absorb large quantities of nitroglycerin, giving a product that was much safer to handle and easier to use than nitroglycerin alone. 2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in EARTHEN vessels, that the excellency of the POWER (dunamis) may be of God, and not of us.
