It is only "the work of human" in that humans selectively crossbred the species together. Nevertheless, a horse's semen can impregnate a donkey (and vice versa) without any need for scientific genetic manipulation. Mules have been around for centuries. There is nothing in nature to prevent these two species from mating and procreating, other than their own normal aversion to doing so.

Why are you so hung up on this point about crossbreeding being "the work of human"? Deckard is a human (presumably). Replicants were created by humans. Deckard and Rachel having intercourse is "the work of human." You keep making this same point over and over again as if it contradicts what others of us have been saying, but it doesn't.

You linked the immune system gene problem (relevant to the movie) with crossbreeding but I clarified it that it's the reproductive gene that gets affected, not the immune system gene.
Again, what difference does that make to anything the rest of us have been discussing? None. Please just let it go already.

Right, and that's what I called nature's rule. Mules have been bred by humans for use by humans for thousands of years but still doesn't occur naturally in the wild.

That would be a natural human reaction. But if some 3rd kind being arranged it so that he mated with..., say a unicorn (assume there is one), then that would be something other than natural "rule".

Look, I'm just clarifying your vague examples. I don't know why you seem bothered as if you are losing money over it.

Jesus I thought I was a nerd. You guys inspire me. God bless America and Canada too. I loved this movie. More than the first one. First one feels shallow compared to this one. I never held the first in such high regard as most here do. Overrated it was (as Yoda might say).

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.
