So, Crystal and I started watching Battlestar Galactica. Yes, it’s the new one. No, I don’t want to argue about it. Yes, the opening music is beautiful and haunting. Music for the end of the world.
And, really, that’s what I want to talk about. The setup for Battlestar Galactica is simple: man created the Cylons, but they rebelled against him. So, not to belabor the point, that makes the Cylons the bad guys. (Now, I’m in Season One, so please no spoilers, especially because I wonder if this breakdown will be messed with later in the series.)
So, Cylons are the villains because they violently rebelled against their creators.
Therefore, why do we object to being painted as the villain in the real world? After all, we violently rebelled against our Creator. Right?
