My Prometheus Thoughts on the Big Questions of the Film Which Have Not Been Answered

Potential Spoilers, You have been warned.

So here are a few of my thoughts on the film after seeing it again this weekend following our press screening the week prior.

First, the Engineers may be a type of Angel. In the bible, the Angels assisted God. Some of them, Lucifer, grew ambitious for power and were cast out. They in turn suffered greatly.

The Engineers may have been created to assist with the creation of life in the universe. They decided to go upon their own agenda, their creations turned on them, and for the most part, wiped them out of existance. The price they paid for their arrogance.

The Engineer we saw at the start of the film may have been cast out or punsished, sort of an expulsion from paradise. His actions created life on earth which essentially were an accident and not part of the grand plan of the engineers. Why they waited until almost 2000 years ago to wipe us out and perhaps changed their mind is a mystery.

I think Shaw may find a mostly dead world when she reches their homeworld. I think that they had a huge disaster on their world of their own creation hence the events depicted in the holographic sequence in the film.

Something they created got out and they paid a severe price. It is likely they may have been fighting with one another as I asked myself time and again, what were they building weapons of mass destruction for. There are easier ways to wipe out a ecosystem than unleashing hostile organisms that you will have to contend with down the road.

One thing is for sure, they have created many weapons and something got them in a bad way, to the point where they abandoned their facility and there was no follow up from others of their kind.

Why did the Engineers provide a map to their weapons facility? I think it was a test. If you can figure out the clues and travel to us, then you are a potential threat that must be dealt with. Why else would the Engineer act so hostile to the humans he encountered upon being awakened? They came to their secret area, and have basically challenged their place in the universe.

The life form at the end? Well the big hugger shows that Human DNA is key for the Aliens as we know them. David opened a vat of primordial facehuggers that intereacted well with Halloway’s DNA and passed it on to Shaw. It grew and voila, we have the early stages of the facehugger and Alien. How it becomes what we know from the classic films is a matter of specualtion but we will know more in time.

I have to wonder what Shaw is doing since one attacked her on sight, going to a planet full of them in one of their ships is not a great idea. Unless she plans to offload her cargo of weapons on them in an effort to end the threat to Earth once and for all.
