My favorite Faux Space Family begins its trek across wherever. Let's talk about:

- 33
- Water
- Bastille Day

Jacob never recapped this season, so there's a dearth of pith and wisdom out there and I feel like we can fix that. (Plus, "dearth of pith"? That was fun to say.)

Right, he would use the plural. I don't think that Six has helped Baltar consider the possibilitiy of God; I think that he's a committed atheist and, when the subject of deity comes up, he uses the singular for some reason. Yes, maybe because he keeps hearing her talk about God.

OK, yeah, I'm sposed to be someplace else right now ;), but I wanted to re-read what you guys have said, so I can think for a while...

And here?

I wonder if it isn't that having listened to Six repeatedly demand a controlling place for her "One God" in the Fate of the Universe, he has come in some way to *blame* her God for all of the mess they're in.

Even as he doesn't believe in a God or gods himself, he can't seem to blame Six (either personally, or as Representative Cylon) *directly.* And given who he is (most of the time, anyway), he can't bring himself to blame himself, or step up and take real responsibility...

I'm not being very articulate here, I know. Core thought: Maybe he's displacing his own guilt and fear and discomfort with the situation off on to Six's God?

His reply *is* that God doesn't have anything to do with the solution he offers that might *save* them in that moment, right?
