Of course, the whole question may be answered by assuming that the events we see in Battlestar Galactica and Galactica 1980 occur in an alternate universe from our own. Then you can write whatever solution you desire and change whatever Earth time you like to synch up with Galactica time.

If you only pay attention to Battlestar Galactica, we have no idea what's happening on Earth while those events occur. As Damocles says, it could very well be 500 years in our future.

If you do acknowlege Gal 80, then you've got something to work with as to time comparison in a modern sense. Though it creates more problems than it solves. And just rankles most people anyway!
