KARA IS SHIVA ?
Baltar is clearly on the Jesus arc

Kara as Shiva? Tigh as Poseidon?
The Hybrid as the Lady in the Lake?
Apollo as Hermes?
Head-Six as Hecate?

... 12 Apostles, 12 Cylon models ... perhaps the Cylons are the creators of the monotheism of Christianity/Judaism/Islam and their equivalent precursors such as Zoroastrianism and the "humans" are the progenitors of mystic faiths, paganism, meditative enlightenment such as Buddhism and the polytheistic faiths: Hinduism, Shintoism, and animistic belief systems
