Are you a Galileo?

On this day(February 13th) in 1633, Italian philosopher, astronomer and mathematician Galileo Galilei arrives in Rome to face charges of heresy for advocating Copernican theory, which holds that the Earth revolves around the Sun. Galileo officially faced the Roman Inquisition in April of that same year and agreed to plead guilty in exchange for a lighter sentence. Put under house arrest indefinitely by Pope Urban VIII, Galileo spent the rest of his days at his villa in Arcetri, near Florence, before dying on January 8, 1642.  –

Do you clearly see what others are missing? Do you stand up for your beliefs? What would you do differently if you were Galileo?

If you need someone to validate your thinking, give us a call, we can help.
