Accordingly I wrote to Professor Miller, of Cambridge, and this geometer
has kindly read over the following statement, drawn up from his information, and tells me that it is strictly correct:-
The long chains of simple and easy reasonings by means of which geometers
are accustomed to reach the conclusions of their most difficult demonstrations, had led me to imagine that all things, to the knowledge of which man is competent, are mutually connected in the same way, and that there is nothing so far removed from us as to be beyond our reach, or so hidden that we cannot discover it, provided only we abstain from accepting the false for the true, and always preserve in our thoughts the order necessary for the deduction of one truth from another.
Theodorus's meaning must be closer to "mere words," since as a geometer
he can hardly have turned away from the abstract.

Besides being a scientist, a geometer
like Euclid and a mathematician, Pythagoras was a theologian, an aspect of his life that we rarely hear of.
Whether the resemblance goes far enough to accept an undoubted common origin for the Jagellon globe and the "Tross gores" as for our globe and the Lenox globe I cannot decide; but it is not improbable that Boulengier, who was an able astronomer, geometer
and geographer (and who also constructed globes) might have made the astronomical-geographical clock which is now one of the treasures of the Jagellon University Library.

A lot of people say that fullerenes are convex polyhedra, but from the point of view of a geometer
, the faces of a polyhedron must be planar," says Schein.
There is also mention of Withers' A Collection of Emblemes (1635), which has an engraving of God as the Great Geometer
The implication of this seems to be that a geometer
both does and does not know geometrical truths.
It may be confusing because Goldberg called them polyhedra, a perfectly sensible name to a graph theorist, but to a geometer
, polyhedra require planar faces," Schein said.
