    And we don't even have to acknowledge G1980 to realize that *our* Earth did exist even in the BSG-TOS universe:
    Transmissions from Apollo 11 were picked up by Galactica

    Is everyone forgetting the end of Season 3 when Earth is quite blatantly shown? The continents were not shown at the end of Season 4.5, and its quite possible its a different Earth but I doubt it.

    However, the dates from Adama's military record possibly mean nothing... because we don't know what kind of calender system the Colonials use. It most certainly isn't our Common Era/Gregorian calender.

    Earth Prime? :lol:

    That sounds more like something that Braga would cook up, not RDM. :techman:

    Hey it works for a shorthand for a messageboard theory, now doesn't it?

    And RDM decided to call Caprica Six "Caprica Six" because of the Internet's habit to distinguish between "Caprica Boomer" and "Galactica Boomer" (particularly in Season 1).

    So if the term "Earth Prime" is used often enough in BSG forums, RDM would maybe even adopt that. ;)

    So, either this Earth is the Sol/Terra Earth before our civilization rose (making BSG happen long in our past) or it's the Sol/Terra Earth long after our civilization spread out into space and abandoned the homeworld (only to be rediscovered twice).

    Keep in mind to RDM has also been shadowing big classic BSG elements like the Pegasus. Is this his way of shadowing the Terra element being that Galactica finds Earth but its not really earth etc.. Th only thing missing now is the run in with higher powers like Count Iblis and the Ship of Lights etc..

    Daniel could be Iblis, thought not likely. Thoughthere is someone pulling the strings, and I think-- now-- that it's Daniel. We could still end up with Iblis popping up before the end.

    The ship of lights could have been either the original Kobol Resurrection ship that came with the Cylons to Earth or the Resurrection ship built by the Earth Cylons.

    IIRC when they jumped insytem, some bridge crew (The Dead Gatea perhaps), stated that the constellations matched the ones displayed in the map room. The constallations were correct for our Earth, and not too terribly displaced from us in time since stellar drift will cause them to distort over time.
