For me it's a toss up between Option 1, 3 and 6.

I'm interested to see the most favored option and to hear some theories I may not have heard before.

3 & 6- Accept no substitutes.
This (although I’d be okay with 5). Ultimately I’d rather not know - the old EU had deliberately contradictory potential origins for the Alien and it was great. :P

I like to think the Engineers synthesized their Black Goo from the xenomorph, and David using said Black Goo to create a xenomorph-like creature is him bringing it full-circle.

I used to like the Space-jockey creatiing them theory but as time went on and after some consideration, its no better than David creating them as they still go from being an "Alien" to an artificial creation.

An "artificial creation" of unknown origin foreign to the universe, is considerably-more Alien rather-than a creature with origins in nature.

Except Nature has proven to be capable of creating creepy and scary Alien like life-forms. Just look at botflies, guinea worms and tarantula hawk wasps, then look at the power of the Tiger and Lion, the senses and hunting capablities of sharks. The idea of the creature being nothing more than imitation of life and not a real life-form, lessons it in my opinion.

Nature. In definition natural.

Alien, foreign, unknown, unnatural.

It is superior to life. Biological AI.
A reflection of us without the pretense.

You know what, to hell with discussing this situation. I'm gonna settle this once and for all by engineering the alien myself. I am gonna bring it to life and unleash it on mankind with a nice sweet AVPGalaxy tattooed in gold over it's caprice so everyone knows who's fault it was for the apocalypse being unleashed.

Yea you're gonna get the egg, the facehugger, the chestburster, the whole damn thing. And you know what, I'm gonna give them eye holes that shoot pink lasers.

If it is option 3, 5 or 6 then when the Engineers came across these Xenomorphs they synthesized the Black Pathogen from them. The Engineers used this to create and destroy life.

David then, using the Pathogen, reverse-engineered his own strain of the Xenomorph.

The votes are at a tie between options 3, 5 and 6. How is the fan base ever going to be satisfied? Should they forever leave it open to interpretation?

More votes are needed to get a better idea of what most fans want.
