BSG... Does this TV series have something to do with Mormonism?
Unbeknownst to most viewers
, "Battlestar Galactica" has been steeped in religion since its very inception. First pitched by uber-producer Glen A. Larson as a series of Bible stories set in space called "Adam's Ark," the reworked "Battlestar Galactica" was also influenced by another religious book: the Book of Mormon. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Larson borrowed plot points from his faith's sacred texts.
However, the new series was not produced by Larson; and even though it keeps Larson's basic ideas, it also goes beyond Larson, introducing new concepts:
The refugee humans, the Colonials, are polytheists in the mold of the Romans and Greeks, while their creations, the mechanical Cylons, have a strict belief in a singular God and in the soul, and are on a mission to eradicate the non-believing humans.
Still, Battlestar Galactica is a great series!
