The Significance of Seven

For Battlestar Galactica geeks (redundant?), I did a little googling of the significance of the number seven, which is the number of the last unknown Cylon model. From Religious Tolerance:

The Greek Phythagoreans believed that the number seven pointed symbolically to the union of the Deity with the universe. This association was picked up by the Christian church, especially during the Middle Ages. Seven was regarded as having sacred power, as in the seven cardinal virtues, seven deadly sins, seven sacraments, seven churches mentioned in the last book in the Bible, Revelation, etc.

More, from Wikipedia and Bible Wheel.

My guess is Baltar, not Starbuck or Adama.

    I watched “Battlestar” last night (Friday, April 18,) and thought you might have some comments about Callie and her status as an overburdened mom, too.

    This was a very well done, and thus very painful ep for me to watch. I thought they captured the depression, and the imagination, and the anger, all very well. I was open mouthed as I watched Cally go into the lock, then stunned at Tory’s reversal.

    I think they’re throwing red herrings at us for the final Cylon. Cally sounded like one to Galen, Starbuck sounded like one to Sam, and previously Baltar sounded like one to Tori. Now someone just needs to say something leading to Tigh.

    I’m finding it harder and harder to watch situations with violence aimed at children. Let alone from caregivers.

    As for the show, I’m struggling more and more to reconcile what happened in the past with the final five. Tyrol and Callie’s child? Tigh’s time as a resistance leader who killed his wife over her betrayal to the Cylons. Sam’s role in unleashing the growing schism among the Cylon models.

    As for the final one, I’m told an Entertainment Weekly spread has some clues. As that the final one is someone not pictured here (Click on No. 10):,,20169703,00.html
