Discuss Battlestar Galactica

Speaking only of human-like models which do resurrect, not the living parts of cylon raiders. Are they made of material which putrefies like animal flesh, or do they instantly disappear, or do they decompose more gracefully?

And this is also the ANSWER that you were given in the FIRST REPLY that posted back to you here:

There's one scene where the HUMAN DOCTOR speaks with a HUMAN CYLON (the one who use to be XENA the WARRIOR PRINCESS) and explains to her how to him there's NO DIFFERENCE between a CYLON and a HUMAN due to the way BOTH of them BLEED the same kind of BLOOD.

So one would also assume that means the bodies of the HUMAN LOOKING CYLONS would also ROT the same way as a HUMAN body does?

Then you wanted to know which eppy this scene took place in and were told which one it was, and now you're asking the same question again, which means we've gone around in a CIRCLE and have arrived right back where we started again.


Now that I have seen more of series 2 and 3, I am not convinced that what you posted is correct: >>>" there's NO DIFFERENCE between a CYLON and a HUMAN due to the way BOTH of them BLEED the same kind of BLOOD"<<< In fact, that seems to be a misquote. What actually happened was that a number 3 cylon, not the doctor, said all the blood looks the same, not that is is the same. But in fact we may be back where we started. I still don't have an answer to my original question. Human and cylon bodies may decompose the same way. I just don't know.

If the BLOOD was DIFFERENT then there'd also be a WAY to tell the difference between a HUMAN and a HUMAN CYLON.

Simply draw BLOOD from them and then ANALYSE IT as a way to know they're not HUMAN.

But that wasn't an OPTION, which is also why BALTAR is suppose to be working on inventing a CYLON DETECTOR which can tell the difference between a HUMAN who is BORN and a HUMAN CYLON who is NOT BORN the same way as a human.

And that's the reason why ADAMA hands over a NUKE to BALTAR, which he gives to the other 6 MODEL who had been TORTURED and REPEATEDLY RAPED by the CREW of the PEGASAS.

And then uses it to BLOW UP CLOUD 9 which was the other SHIP where people went for REST and RELAXATION or to have a GOOD TIME, thus also killing 10,000 more survivors.

And as you can see one also previously pointed out that FACT to you as well:

@Invidia said:

Yes, and then BALTAR also gets ADAMA to give him the NUKE telling Adama that he needs it to create the kind of CYLON DETECTOR that he claims to be creating. And then he gives it to the other 6 MODEL who had been RAPED and TORTURED by the CAPTAIN and the CREW of the PEGASAS.

And then she also used that NUKE to BLOW UP CLOUD 9, the ship where they'd go for recreation.

Plus when the show began we also see the OTHER 6 MODEL hugging BALTAR as the other NUKES destroyed his house by the lake.

So how the hell is it one can't tell the difference between her and BALTAR when she's also so strong that she saves his life by protecting him from the BLAST of the BOMB and from the HUGE PICTURE WINDOW that shatters to bits in that scene.

Yet BALTAR also shows up to be RESCUED looking pretty much UNTOUCHED by the BLAST???


But you also CHOSE to IGNORE that message and claim that the bodies don't COMPOSE the same way ... even though they're also full of the SAME KIND of BLOOD as HUMANS have.

If the HUMAN CYLONS bodies have the SAME KIND of BLOOD in them as a HUMAN does, and it's IMPOSSIBLE to tell a HUMAN CYLON BODY from a HUMAN body, then the LOGICAL CONCLUSION would be the HUMAN CYLON BODY would probably also ROT or DECOMPOSE the same way as a HUMAN body DOES.

But their MIND is also RESURRECTED again into another different look- a- like HUMAN CLYON BODY (which is also NOT the case with a HUMAN MIND which also DIES along with the HUMAN BODY).


I am not convinced that humans and cylons have "the same kind of blood that humans have" in all respects. However, I did not claim that bodies don't rot in the same way. Maybe they do, maybe not. Baltar's cylon blood test did detect that #8 was a cylon but he lied about the result because #6 said if he told the truth #8 might kill him. Why didn't Baltar die in the nuclear blast? Possibilities: 1) The writers did not think about that 2) #6 claimed that she protected Baltar but maybe he survived for a different reason. In the Hiroshima blast on Aug 6 1944. tens of thousands died instantly, but in the Our Lady of the Assumption church. a half mile from the blast center, 8 Jesuit missionaries were unharmed by the blast, and in fact did not succumb to radiation poisoning. I went to Hiroshima in 1999.

Baltar is also still ALIVE at the end of the STORY and reads in the NEWSPAPER about how HERA (the HALF HUMAN/HALF HUMAN CLYON child of HELO and Athena) was the MITOCHONDRIAL MOTHER of us all.

So how does one account for that, and for BALTAR being able to SURVIVE for the thousands of years that it would have taken for the humans that were still left alive to breed with the other creatures there on the planet they inhabited???

Doesn't that FACT also seem to indicate that BALTAR was also NEVER really HUMAN in the first place???


Indeed, there is something unique about Baltar. Maybe he is neither human nor cylon. or maybe both.

Whatever he is after that EXPLOSION at his LAKE HOUSE (that NO HUMAN should ever have been able to SURVIVE), it appears a part of CAP 6 got placed inside of him and a part of BALTAR got placed inside of her, because he's always talking to her (as if she's still there) and after she's DOWNLOADED and RESURRECTED again she also has talking to him as if he's also still there (whereas no one else can see what they see).

So it's also as if that BOMB did something and caused the 2 of them to somehow get MIXED UP together.
