Because they’re effective at killing. And because they could. They created life because it was an efficient way to cause mayhem. How tragic that that might be the actual meaning of life, at least according to Prometheus.

Why did the engineer drink the black goo in Prometheus?
We think he drinks the black goo to break down his own structure and spread life on Earth through his own DNA, but that doesn’t really explain his surprise while he’s disintegrating (and if the Engineers do have the same DNA as us, it’s hard to say why the Engineers had to be broken down in order to create humanity).
What was the engineers purpose in Prometheus?
The ritualistic sacrifice of this particular Engineer is not different from the lore surrounding the Mayans and the Incas and carries religious undertones, which is subtly hinted at throughout Prometheus, especially when it is revealed that an Engineer was sent to Earth so as to prevent humanity from being consumed by
What was the black stuff in Prometheus?
The black liquid in the earlier drafts of Prometheus which was written by Jon Spaihts, was originally a swarm of black scarab like insects that dissolved the sacrificial Engineer, and infused the Xenomorph DNA into Fifield which turned him into a form of a xenomorph.
Why did the head explode in Prometheus?
As was mentioned, the engineer was infected by the biological agent (black goo). When they tried to stimulate the engineer’s head it exploded because the substance is an aggressive agent given it’s reaction to Charlie, the worms, and the other engineer.
Who killed the Engineers in Prometheus?
Why did David kill all the Engineers? David has expressed his disdain for the human race. But he doesn’t know much about the engineers. In fact, they’re supposed to be gods, much more advanced than humans.
What did David say to the engineer?
Anil Biltoo of the SOAS Language Centre in London, who served as the Linguist Teacher on Prometheus, has revealed exactly what it was that David said in an interview with The Bioscopist (via Ropes of Silicon): ” This man is here because he does not want to die. He believes you can give him more life.”
Who actually created the Xenomorphs?
That certainly seems to be the case: we see an engineer, apparently left alone on a barren earth as his fellows ship out, who consciously sacrifices himself by drinking black goo that causes his body to crumble into little bits of DNA that spread throughout the world.
What happened to the engineer at the beginning of Prometheus?
The Engineer was on a lifeless planet (one of many). He knowingly drank the black fluid, accepting with peace that this would end his life. His body was torn apart, seeding the planet with fragments of his DNA, which eventually formed the life on whatever planet he was on.
Why does David dye his hair in Prometheus?
For his first appearance in Prometheus, Fassbender, a natural brunette, dyed his hair blond and fashioned it into a style influenced by Lawrence. Scott requested that Fassbender dye his hair for the role, in order to provide the character with an otherworldly and unsettling appearance.
Who created the virus in Prometheus?
91 – 15 (as designated by Weyland Corporation) was a lethal pathogen (actually a mutating agent), that was manufactured by the Engineers, most likely as a biological weapon for war and poses. Due to its unstable nature at ambient temperature, the Engineers housed the pathogen within Steatite ampules.
What was the snake creature in Prometheus?
The Hammerpede is the nickname given to the cobra-like creatures seen in Prometheus. Though not technically a new creature, the Hammerpedes were a result of worms being dragged into the dark liquid. I don’t think these were indigenous worms either.
