You know, somebody equipped Ben and encouraged him to do what he did. And that makes me wonder, did Zoe really figure out the creation of true artificial intelligence, or did somebody help her out as well.
See thats kind of the problem I have with the "God did it" BSG revelation. It causes every act that leads up to the destruction of the colonies to be possibly associated with "god". It could be argued either way that Zoe invented true AI or god used her to invent the AI.
