I wrote about this back in 2013, and I remember that you were on forums way back then too. I think it's funny that the new movie is shaping up to use many of the ideas that were being talked about back then.
David might know better than to believe in an all powerful god or a soul in the religious sense.
While he does seem robotic at times he expresses a lot of emotion if you watch him carefully. I just saw the movie again skipping any parts where he was not in the picture. It's like he cannot hide his emotion. I've read that a god complex sometimes stems from an inferiority complex.
"Not minding that it hurts"
there must be some type of pain there.
Awesome theory! It would be crazy if David were to attach his head onto an engineer's body, his capabilities would be limitless! Referring to the post above me, I agree that David has a pretty hefty inferiority complex. That's usually what deep anger stems from. It is evident that he wants to be appreciated and maybe even worshiped. :O
What's the story, MUTHUR?
I think david is an android with an agenda, like ash in alien. He is quite hostile throughout prometheus and seems to view humans as inferior, albeit he doesnt openly state it.
david is expendable and may have been transmitting data back to earth all along, from weylands point of view, he is obtaining the goods.
