Prometheus : "why was I created?"

Caught Prometheus over the weekend. Haven’t seen a movie in quite a while. Lido is crowded even on a Friday at 3pm.Overall, the movie was a so-so sci-fi flick that runs against conventional Darwinism or The Big Bang.

With a very loose plot and vague story-line, and mediocre special effects and alien monsters, the only highlight for me was it’s attempts at fielding philosophical questions about the origin, existence, and purpose of human life.
The statements asked by the humanoid robot, David, seemed a tad bit depressing. For example, David asked why he was created by humans, to which one guy replied, “because we could.” David, very much like a human, asked how they would feel if after seeking out their “maker” they got the exact same answer.
“Why was I created?”
Have you asked yourself that? What would be an acceptable answer to you?
For Christians, the Westminster Shorter Catechism, distills from the Bible what we were created for:
Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever.
Amen to that!
