What is everyone's current theory about where our civilisation fits into the BSG timeline? I am a fan of "our far future" myself, though "our very distant past" is also a strong possibility.
This I think might well be one of the big reveals for the finale. What if whoever is left from our civilisation is pulling the strings? What if the human society on Kobol were actually the survivors of our Earth the first time it fell, then after thousands of years, the thirteenth tribe were able to re-populate it?
Scary thought - what if all that remains of our civilisation were twelve Cylons, and all the colonials are in fact Cylon to a greater or lesser extent, and all the true humans died millions of years ago?
What do you all think?
