There are many depictions in ancient writings and paleo-art of half-man, half-beast hybrids. But what is generally thought of these is that they are symbolic.
In alchemical texts, among others, there is the depiction of half man on top and half beast below. This was usually taken to mean an adept who had achieved the level of mind development to have the beast aspect of his nature under complete control, giving way to more divine insights. It was a bit like saying wizard, level 7 (or whatever).

The other depictions, say as in Egyptian dynastic art, was for the head of an animal on a human body. This usually signified the human form of the god represented by the animal, and was again a fusion of divine with the human, rather than the animal per se. A good example would be Anubis, the jackal headed god, or Tuaeret (Sobek), the crocodile headed god.

I think later interpretation was to assume that what was meant by these depictions was some form of hybrid, as the idea of the divine became more, well, profane.

In pure terms, as recent DNA research has shown, we share a lot of DNA with all of our ancestors, and many creatures living today. We are in our current form, arguably, a hybrid of many animals from our past, with elements of our reptillian ancestors still well marked in both our DNA and our physiology. But actually have scales or slitted irises? No.

Are you specifically referring to:

- tales of human / non-human intercourse (broadly defined)
or
- tales of hybrid human / non-human creatures?

If it's the latter (the hybrid creatures) there are plenty of examples from ancient mythology and folklore.

You can't have one without the other, I suppose! But yeah, I did mean human and non-human mating creating a new being, rather than the centaurs, to pick an example, who presumably only mated with other centaurs.

Visa to Australia has been denied.

Conspiracy theorist David Icke barred from Australia
Controversial conspiracy theorist David Icke has blown up after being barred from bringing his speaking tour to the country.

:slapd:
Is there any point in refusing him visa? He's just as available on the internet and can give an online seminar just for Australians if he want to. He won't make that much money of course... I can of course see the signal given that antisemites are not welcome.

Sure - I think most people agree on that one.

However, the claims that he is a Holocaust Denier? Not true. That's not what he is saying at all.

Many of his ideas are, in my opinion, nasty and wrong, including all of that Jewish conspiracy stuff. But banning him is just giving him more ammunition for his wacko theories.

(Not to mention freedom of speech and all that)

If the internet has taught us anything, it's that "freedom of speech" on the internet means "spread as much hatred as possible" to too many people. So I'm not too bothered if Icke ends up preaching to his choir.

Alas, there is always someone looking to make capital out of a disaster.
