This is old, but I found the previous posts accurate in the Mormon influence on the show. I love BSG more than Dwight from the office. I kept thinking
throughout the show how this was a possible explanation of how humanity might have been formed.
I have read Zecharia Sitchin translations of Sumerian beliefs on humanities origins. I am a believer in ancient aliens alongside the millions of
others that share that belief.
What I found most intriguing, something that is constantly overlooked by ancient alien researchers is this:
According to Zecharia Sitchin, God, or as the Anunnaki put it (the creator of all), had a mysterious hand in humanities salvation and eventual
integration with Anunnaki bloodlines.
In BSG The Cylons and humans share the last stop, (earth), they encounter an indigenous population of naturally evolved humans, much like the Sumerian
accounts tell. The astonishment of the supposed ancient astronauts could be similar to what the show depicts. The fleets leadership is happy that they
can reproduce with the native, primitive new earthlings. They say their DNA is compatible with the old humans.
The same was said by the leadership of the Samarian pantheon. That is why Lord Enki was inclined to attempt to fuse their DNA with the earthlings.
BSG has many references to the bible and other works of faith. It tries to shed light IMO about where the "gods" got the idea of being "gods". Even in
Zecharia Sitchin translations, they mention how the gods were puzzled at how their fellow astronauts pretended to be gods!. They all fell in line
since at the time tensions were high amongst earth settlers and they needed the muscle earthlings provided. Armies were supposedly being formed and
given weapons of the gods to fight the gods.
Prometheus and other myths come to mind. The movie Prometheus couldn't be more about disclosure IMO.
Imagine though. Maybe not BSG and Cylons. But still, what if greys are an ancient enemy of our founders /engineers.
What if we are all that is left of an ancient civilization that made earth its grave but before going into oblivion, they gave us the seeds of
Like in BSG, when Lee Adama and his dad are talking about NOT building cities, and trying to start from scratch,
It could be said that what our ancestors left behind, was considerable. They might not have left us behind considering the sacrifice they supposedly
made. They probably just integrated into our population, being genetically similar.
I was thinking of the last episode of BSG as well at the end, when the two "spirit" beings that had been communicating with Dr Balthazar and Caprica 6
are observing the world (our world) 150,000 years later. I think back again to what Zecharia Sitchin translated as the gods at the end of the last
tribulation and fall of the gods,(Enil, and Enki) are talking about all that happened and remember the divine hand of fate and their amazement with
it. It seems every player in our origin was lead by the hand of fate. Their destiny slave to the fate that a "God" or force of nature guided.
If you have some time, try reading Zecharia Sitchin lost book of Enki. Take special notice to the messenger form Anu, that tells the Anunnaki they
cannot return to Niburu since they have grown accustomed to earth and would die on Niburu. This figure also saves mankind by his intervention. (during
The "gods" acknowledge the figure to have been an angel or messenger of the creator of all. They held spiritual beliefs. Much like BSG, the leaders
were struggling with the core of spirituality and morality. Judgment and salvation.. LIFE
I love BSG. I am a F-ing nerd- I don't care.
If you can watch BSG and enjoy a great story that many will find relevant and entertaining.
Fracking do it!
