Without making too much of it, I perceive some equality between human and angelic intelligence in geometric matters.

I think “angelic” is a cop-out. When he spoke of the “Divine intellect” Galileo was clearly referring to God.

He acknowledges, BTW, the controversial nature of these remarks right in the Dialogue, with Simplicio remarking, “This speech strikes me as very bold and daring.” Of course Salviati duly denies it.

What are the chances? I typed my previous reply and stepped into the other room, and what should meet my eye but a scene from CSI:New York with a wall covered by a rack containing boxes, each labeled in script,

Angelic
