Six and Baltars' dad - manipulation or religion?

I didn't see her putting her dad in a place she liked as manipulating Baltar - it came across to me as practicing the Cylon religion that emphasizes love - doing something for someone that would give them pleasure, and satisfaction for another, seemed completely innocent for Six to do. I didn't see this as an attempt to further butter-up Baltar into giving away the defence codes - what about you? Sorry if this appears like a trivial topic.

If she really cared, maybe Baltar's dad would still be alive. She probably felt some joy out of it. But, seems like part of her mission.

so... people can only do big good and evil? there are something called small acts of kindness, perhapse you've heard of it, if not practiced it.

It makes no sense. If she cared about things like old people in elder care then why would she be casually be snapping babies' necks?

It was just something Ron Moore wrote now and placed back then, so that we would feel something for Baltar becoming a farmer. A feeling after the fact.
