earth and try to become part of society, although this is illegal. A Blade Runner is a special person trained to find and destroy these replicants before they cause damage to the vulnerable people of earth. In order for natural humans to get shipped off earth, they have to pass an examination in self-sufficiency. If a person fails this examination, he or she is left on the planet with the rest of the people who could not pass. Amongst these inferior people are the Blade Runners. The Blade Runners jobs are to give out special examinations, which are a series of questions to seek out the replicants. After finding the replicants, however, a Blade Runners job is only half finished. The rest of the job is to kill or retire the replicant. Even though the replicants have incredibly humanistic characteristics, they are very good examples of why artificial creation is wrong. Unnatural humans breath, eat, sleep and bleed like humans but they are very different. The normal life expectancy of the machines is only about four years, so even in a mature body, they are still really only infants. However, most replicants are created with advantages that few humans possess, like superior power and knowledge, which does pose threat to the imperfect race of earth. The movie shows that creatures are built only to serve and without that function, they are not necessary at all. Artificial creation, in this film, has turned into something that has been accepted everywhere but earth. The argument that these unreal humans are living organisms is one that can be debated only because of the strong similarities that replicants have to humans. Through both the readings of the texts and the viewing of the movie, it has proven time and time again that only God s creation is natural and acceptable. It is wrong to create life, as it is to take it away. To re-create or create life is morally unjustifiable. In the instances of Blade Runner, creating these artificial beings was wrong, which is why Blade Runners were put to the test to retire these machines. As for the Pygmalion s stone girl, this is an example of selfishness and greed. Pygmalion insulted everybody and put a rock sculputure of a woman above everyone else. To re-create, as in the story of Pynchon and Esther, it is wrong because it is tampering with the creation that God has given that young girl. Moreover, taking the surgery to a sexual level is a sin on its own. Life is a gift and it should not be taken for granted; to play God and give life as if it was a right is morally and inexcusable wrong.
