"The world of BSG is rich with mythical history and religious ideology that extends from the beginnings of human civilization to the origins of the Cylon; humanity’s created AI species. Aside from the social references to supernatural concepts, like fate and destiny, there are specific religious tribes and accompanying political manifestations. The Cylons, though considered children of humanity, follow their own religious ideals that even vary among themselves, having their own factions with religious range. It is fair to say the religion is as much a theme in Battlestar Galactica as anything else (and maybe even more so!). The BSG universe has not shied away from developing a technologically advanced world where religion has evolved in multiple ways for both humans and Cylons. Many religious ideals in BSG represent current real-world religious beliefs or the implications of such beliefs. Exploring religion in BSG is one way we can evaluate our own present reality, and find better ways to communicate who we are and why we believe the way we do." [Excerpt from the Introduction]
