The Blade Runner thread

With Blade Runner 2049 coming out in early October, I thought I could start a thread about the original movie, a scientific masterpiece that scared the heck out of me as a boy and impressed the heck out of me as a young adult.

The first question is was Richard Decker, played by Harrison Ford a human or a replicant? To me clearly, he was a human.

1 ) Replicants only live 4 years due to genetic manipulation and breakdown of the genes, he's still alive 30 year later in Blade Runner 2049. So unless the new film specifically states that he was made special or differently, this very interesting debate has a conclusion.

2 ) He has a handle on his emotions. Replicants due to their shorter life spans do not.

3 ) He's not as physically capable of any of the replicant's he's hunting.
