That doesn't make sense! Why was number six's back glowing then when she was fraking Baltar in the pilot episode. I don't know about you but when I am having sex my spine nor my girlfriends spine glows in the dark! I know they are similar to the Terminator, living organism on the outside but metal on the inside.
That is the impression that I have been given. It is not like they can do live autopsies to see who is a cylon and who is human. But I disagree that they are entirely human. They wouldn't be able to download and their spines wouldn't glow. Sorry, but this time I am in the right and you're wrong! Nice for a change!
Talk to you later!

They've had Leoben's corpse for awhile, and they said in the miniseries he had guts and everything. Also, in "Sacrifice", you can clearly see the autopsy scars on Bommer's body.

Yes, I recall Boomer's body being examined and her corpse was used in the episode when bar was hijacked by the terrorist group on Cloud 9. But you still haven't explained to me why her spine was glowing in the dark in the pilot episode if it is just bone! I know I am not as current with what you kids are doing now and days but I haven't heard of anyone making their spines glow in the dark. Maybe I am just too old fashion. I just prefer my women to have non-glow-in-the-dark spines and just leave the kinky stuff to me. LOL. But seriously! Why is her spine glowing! How do they download? I wish Ron Moore would give more details sometimes. It would help in situations like this! Let's follow some logic here. They download and upload like a computer so therefore they need some sort of computer processor to make that happen plus a really cool modem! So lets say that some of their tech is on the microscopic level - like nanotechnology! So we can look at things like the Bionic Woman for example with her little computer blood running through her veins making her able to heal quickly. So I am willing to accept that they have something similar that would be undetectable unless you knew what you were looking for. Furthermore, that they have living tissue much like the Terminator. Guts, organs, muscle, and skin. I'm totally with you on this! But....BUT!!!!! There must be other elements that are inorganic and therefore computer based in order for them to download/upload, to be affected by the gas cloud at Ragnar, and to make their spines glow in the dark during sex! So either Moore completely screwed up, and therefore we have many inconsistencies within the dynamics of the Cylons and the plot! Or, Moore has not bothered to go into enough detail to explain these anomalies!
That's what I hate sometimes about shows is inconsistencies! I know that Baltar said that it is difficult to identify a cylon but you can identify one with blood samples. But after dissecting a Cylon there should have been obvious differences! But again, if there are all these inconsistencies in the script then it makes this argument irrelevant! Because then that means we are both right and both wrong.
So if there is anyone else who can marry both of our arguments together and explain it, I am more than willing to hear anyones opinion on the matter.

I do admit it's a little far-fetched, but, hey, it's sci-fi.
