The idea of two immortal beings traversing time together draws from at least two mythological references (Mother Earth/Father time; Zeus/Hera). But it also leaves room for a Trinitarian viewpoint as well.
Hang in there, BSG fans, I’ll see the final episode this weekend and post something shortly. Keep your thoughts fresh—I can’t wait to see the end and hear your comments.
Okay, everyone. I just realized I’m a full week behind. I guess I only thought I had been watching online on Saturday the shows that aired on Friday. It looks like they aired the Friday before. So, I apologize for that goof!! The rest of the world already knows what is happening with Hera!!!
In stylistic presentation, Anders and Ellen give the two sides of God’s story in relation to humanity. Meanwhile, Cavil and Boomer give man’s story in relation to God. If you desire to be angry and vengeful toward your creator, you will be.
The interesting thing is that if I issued the same challenge that Roslin issued, “Now who do you want to be?,” you would think me at best a confrontational, narrow-minded, fear-monger. Those words would probably not elicit a sense of allegiance, faithfulness, and inspiration in you.
Roslin calls both of their faiths on the carpet because events aren’t working out in their favor nor according to their philosophies and/or prophesies. But the real problem with their faith isn’t that they are frauds…
Gaius Baltar’s words echo the arguments of Job’s well-meaning friends. “What have you done to deserve this? What sins have you committed?” But unlike Job’s friends, Baltar wasn’t arguing that they were guilty of any wrong; he was simply using their innocence to call God’s character into question.
Two lone voices of hope stood in this episode of BSG - and their voices were loud. They demolished the arguments of despair that were consuming the minds of the fleet.
Well, it’s super week for some of the hottest television series… Three of the nation’s top rated shows are premiering again this week.
I find it fascinating and wonderful that the Cylons and humans made up just long enough to reach Earth together - only to find it abandoned and in complete ruin. What poetic justice to their ongoing conflict. Irony? Yes. A glimpse of things to come? Maybe.
