Are cylons muslims?
So the Cylons are saying this and I quote:
- "There is no God but God" which literally translates to لا اله الا الله
- "There is no such thing as coincidence, God wills the universe according to his desire" which translates to لا يوجد شيء اسمه صدفه، انما يدبر الله الكون كيف يشاء
- "There are no Gods, there is only one God" translates to لا يوجد آلهة، انما هو اله واحد
Picture by immolation scene.
All of these themes are at the core of the Muslim faith. And the literal translation translates into verses commonly used by Muslims everyday. The first one is what you HAVE to believe as the basis for Islam.
I would assume that the writer(s) of BattleStar Galactica probably knew about this, and is(are) making Cylons talk like Muslims.
The question is why?
