I've always asked myself... if there's no Earth (in the meaning of "our" Earth) in the BSG universe, what's the point of calling it Earth anyway?
Because that's what it was called in the 1970s BSG, and Moore wanted to reuse as much of the original's mythology as possible. I really don't think it goes any deeper than that.
And we don't even have to acknowledge G1980 to realize that *our* Earth did exist even in the BSG-TOS universe:
