    From my desktop dictionary:

    Noun, chiefly Hinduism

    A manifestation of a deity or released soul in bodily form on earth. An incarnate divine teacher.

    An incarnation, embodiment, or manifestation of a person or idea.

    From Wikipedia:

    Possibly derived from Dasavatara, the ten most famous incarnations of Vishnu.

    Hmmm, sounds like there could be religious symbolism involved here, I guess they should be banned from the site!
