Re: My rambling thoughts on BSG after a full series run-through

^ He's throwing a lot of politics into BSG, that is not explicitly shown there. Especially the Protestant vs Jew thing, there were no Protestants or Jews in this show, it was just polytheists vs Cylon monotheists the Monotheist God was based loosely on the Christian God, but many interpreted it differently.

Why the hell would a TV series set 150,000 years before our time refer directly to 9/11?
Unless we're willing to completely trust what Khalid Sheik Muhammed said under waterboarding we can't accurately establish when the planning for 9/11 started. It could've been in the works for 150,000 years, divided into phases like getting humans out of Africa and into the Middle East, and getting other ones across the Bering land bridge and then to Manhattan, then selling Manhattan to the Europeans, and then selling them Seattle so Boeing could have a headquarters. Then the attack somehow leads to the creation of killer monotheistic robots.

Okay, maybe that plot device isn't working too well.
