The Question of the Ages

"If you created me... who created you?"

I like this dialog from the opening scene of the movie Alien: Covenant…

May I ask you a question, father?


If you created me… who created you?

"If you created me... who created you?"
“If you created me… who created you?”

Ah. The question of the ages…
which I hope you and I will answer one day.
All this. All these wonders of art, design, human ingenuity…
all utterly meaningless in the face of the only question that matters.
Where do we come from?
I refuse to believe… that mankind is a random by product of molecular circumstance…
no more than the result of mere biological chance.
There must be more.
