Do we know for sure that they didn't start from scratch after the Exodus from Kobol? Did the bits and pieces that were mentioned about that period over the course of the series establish anything for certain?
Well if they did they came very fast from the scratch to pre roman, roman, medieval ages... colonizing 12 planets, discovering FTL, making robots in what it seems less then 2000 years. I mean that's time well spent.
I would assume they arrived at the Colonies with at least basic industrial knowledge, but it would've taken some time (centuries?) to build up enough infrastructure to have a "modern" society.
The exodus from Kobol must of been pretty large as well. It's taken humanity 10s of 1000s of years to reach a population of 6 billion so either colonials bread like rabbits or they have a large population base to start the colonies with.
