Discussions about relativism and absolutes as it's lived through moral and ethical decisions informed by one's own spirituality/religion/tradition are provocative. That this clip serves as an entry point to thinking and talking about the consequences you mention has merit.
As for the "cheese factor," I really enjoy thinking about existential questions and how I not only differentiate myself as a human being, but how I become a better person. This actuality from BSG just helps me wrestle with that "mortality" a bit differently and recalls some of the resonance — and dissonance — in my love affair with Camus during my college years. And, as far as entertainment, what's wrong with a little cheese?! It's science fiction! *grin*
