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.
