CIC: Combat Information Center. (Akashik) Knowledge is power.
The showdown:Baltar: Hera's not a thing. She's a child. And she holds the key to humanity's survival as well. (mitochondrial cylon-human hybrid Eve!)
Cavill: And how do you know that?Baltar: I see angels, angels in this very room, now I may be mad, but that doesn't mean I'm not right. Because there's another force at work here, there always has been. It's undeniable, we've all experienced it, everyone in this room has witnessed events that they can't fathom, let alone explain away by rational means. Puzzles, deciphered in prophecy. Dreams given to a chosen few. Our loved ones, dead, risen. Wether we wanna call that God, or Gods, or some sublime inspiration, or a divine force that we can't, nor understand... it doesn't matter, it doesn't matter. It's here, it exists, and our two destinies are entwined with this force.
Cavill: If that were true, and that's a big if. How do I know this force has our best interest in mind? How do you know that God is on your side, Dr.?
Balthar: I don't. God's not on any one side. God's a force of nature. Beyond good and evil. Good and evil, we created those. Want to break the cycle? Break the cycle of birth, death, rebirth, destruction, escape, death. And that's in our hands, and our hands only. But it requires a leap of faith. Requires that we live in hope not fear.
Unfortunately, the Final Five have do some brain-bonding in Anders' goo to deliver the resurrection formula, at which point Tyrol reads Tory's mind and finds out she killed his wife Cally. He breaks the brain bond to murder her, and Cavil's crew thinks they've been double-crossed. A horrendous gunfight follows, which is concluded only by a direct intervention from the divine.

The Dharma project has arrived ;)
skip to the future...
Six: All of this has happened before.
Baltar: But the question remains, does all of this has to happen again?
Six: This time I bet no.
Baltar: You know I've never known you to be the optimist, why the sudden change of heart?
Six: Mathematics, law of averages. Let a complex system repeat itself long enough eventually something surprising might occur, that too is in Gods plan.
Baltar: You know he doesn't like that name. (!) Silly me, silly silly me. (the fool)
The Enochian communications teach us that not only must humanity itself initiate the cosmic drama of the apocalypse through the magical formula delivered to John Dee and Edward Kelley more than 4 centuries ago, but humans must also be the physical actors that bring about the plagues, wars, and famines described with such chilling eloquence in the vision of St. John. : "We must let the demons of Coronzon into our minds by means of a specific ritual working. They will not find a welcome place there all at once, but will worm their way into our subconscious and make their homes there slowly over a period of years or even decades. In the minds of individuals that resist this invasion they will find it difficult to gain a foothold, but in the more pliable minds of those who welcome their influence they will establish themselves readily."
While all the women came and went. Barefoot servants too.
Outside in the cold distance, A wildcat did growl.
Two riders were approaching, and the wind began to howl.
