Not in 1000 years. 10,000 maybe.
Looked to me like the temple illustration from the book of Pythia.
Which makes this even more confusing!
So if the constellations "match" what they'd look like from Earth, say within 1,000 yrs from now, then we are somewhere around the years 2300 - 7000 AD?
Would mean we couldn't be in the past since the stars would have moved. . . and the 13th tribe who left Kobol 4,000 years ago would have gotten here @ 2000 BC - 3000 AD?
I think. . .
Surviving Earth humans live underground, are cannibals and called Ovions.
It doesn't really tell us anything. The projection they got them from may or may not have been ajusted for current time. Its also a fairly constant rate of change, and it would depend on how accurate their measurement/comparison was.
Bumping this back up for the premiere.
"Sometimes a Great Notion" has just aired and I really liked what the episode delivered concerning the whole Earth mythology. Those flashes into the past were nice little touches too. I hope they flesh everything out in a satisfactory way.
Yes, it looked like modern day Earth to me in the flashbacks.
But so does Caprica
So does this latest episode kill all possibility that BSG's Earth is the homeworld and that Kobol is a colony of it? It would seem so, assuming that bit about Earth's population all being Cylons was on the level.
Damn. I would have preferred it that way.
Maybe it's in Florida
Or maybe this is nubsg's version of Terra, except this time the planet did nuke itself.
Since Colonial culture looks so much like what we saw of Earth, I wonder if the final five had some influence over colonial development.
I think they really missed an opportunity by not having the Earth populated by telepathic mutants like in Beneath the Planet of the Apes.
That bit with Tigh in the water, the ruins to the right edge of the screen looked vaguely like the base of the Statue of Liberty. I thought Tigh was going to find Damn Dirty Apes(tm).
Nope, me too.
I didn't. AFAIK, the broken bridge doesn't have enough support columns to be the Brooklyn Bridge. The BSG bridge had only one pylon, sticking out of the water, holding it up. The Brooklyn Bridge has two, side by side. If I had a screenshot, I could explain this more clearly.
You explained it just fine.
The second pylon could have crumbled away. Those ruins looked like they could have been ther for centuries.
I don't think that happened either. If there ever was a second pylon, there was absolutely no trace of it left - and the BSG bridge wasn't wide enough to need one, anyway.
