good and evil are objectively described as acts which benefit another person or transgress against another person. good and evil are not mystical wishy washy bullshit, they are apparent to, now that you mention it, even elementary school children. any child of normal psychological and social development, anyone who has empathy: you don't hurt other people

children possess a basic understanding of morality, right and wrong, good and evil: putting yourself in someone else's shoes. religion does not make morality, it is in all of us, naturally. japan isn't touched by abrahamic religions, they have morality. a hindu and a jew can agree on the vast majority of simple human morality, because they are both human, not because of their religions

if anything, religion usually defines ways for people to defy basic human morality, such as with vain, shallow, self-serving petty judgments, which is what people who call themselves religious and conservative usually busy their small minds with. that's a form of transgressing against another. something a moral person would understand as wrong. something a religious person would think is "right"

i'm not a bigot

if you as a human being are not allowed your normal biological outlets, those urges just don't disappear, they reemerge as disappointment and hatred at the world that denies you your normal needs because of a vain shallow "morality" (aka, hypocrisy)

traditionalism, conservatism, and extreme religiosity breeds evil in this world

that is an objective fact

find a deeply conservative place in the world, and you also find poverty, misery, and hatred

find a liberal place in the world, and you also find fortune, happiness, and tolerance

chart religiousity versus happiness in this world and it is inversely proportional

i don't have everything figured out

but i do know strict religious upbringing that suppresses normal human sexuality feeds hatred and suffering

if you live in a society where rich men can have many wives so there's less women to go around, female infanticide is ripe, and your economy sucks so you can't get a job: no woman will look at you

you have no pornography, women are wrapped up and hidden from sight

your corrupt broken government censors the internet

so you have no outlet for your sexuality

none. zero

this is extremely unnatural

and this is what fuels all the suffering and hatred in conservative societies and with men from conservative backgrounds: a young man with no options to express his natural biological desires turns to the worst choices in life: murder and psychopathy

meanwhile, in "decadent", "immoral" societies, where expression of natural human sexuality is easy, young men and women are productive, happy and content

the greatest creator of evil in this world is traditional religion

yes

because conservative countries that disallow expression of sexuality, and also disallow censor pornography, create murderous assholes and bitter hatemongers

so allowing sexuality is best, but allowing pornography is second best

blocking both creates hellholes of human suffering. that's religious conservative "morals" at work

the more conservative the area of the country (and the world) the more online pornography is consumed:

pointlessly uptight people still need their biological release, and since their bullshit "morals" don't allow them to express their natural proclivities in real life, they're all closet perverts

so southerners need that fiber, they won't oppose it

I've been downloading ISO's from MS for years.

You might want to qualify that. I know MSDN (MS Development Network) and TechNet (IT professionals) have had pre-release and release versions of ISOs available since before 2000 if I recall correctly, but that wasn't suitable for delivery to consumers, but services for software development and mid-to-larger corporate and enterprise customers, access was bundled by annual subscriptions, roughly $1000 USD and up.

I think retail license purchases & ISO download, or downloadable recovery ISOs via Digital River has been available since MS Vista, at least since 2011, but perhaps earlier. /shurg

The power of the movie was due in large part to the uncertainty of Deckard's origins, and the uncertainty of his fate. Scott's opinion on the matter is valid, but if it were more than an opinion on a character he did not create, he could have made it explicit in the movie, which he did not.

So... opinion.

How do you conclude that replicants don't appear to age? Most of them didn't live long enough to appear older, but for those that don't have an expiration date (presumably Deckard and Rachael) , there was nothing to imply that they wouldn't appear to age as they, well, aged. Apparently quite a few people did not understand what a "replicant" was supposed to be in the movie, or, for instance, why they would need human organs, like eyes. Hint: NOT A ROBOT.
