Chat GPT
I've gotta share this! Yes, peanut gallery, Phat has found a new shiny object! It all started less than an hour ago...
I was browsing my stock page, and stumbled upon this article:
Artificial Intelligence Just Had Its Very Own “iPhone Moment” .
Now, granted it was an advertisement in my M1 Money App, but it got me curious about ChatGPT. So I went to their website and signed up. (Some of you remember my brief love affair with CleverBot)
Im super impressed with ChatGPT just messing around with the platform so far.
I asked it one specific question:

How can I explain the concept of God in human form so as to convince critical thinkers?
In a matter of seconds, the Bot generated this response:

The concept of God in human form can be a complex and controversial topic, and there are many different views and beliefs on this subject. However, here are a few key points that may be helpful in explaining this concept to critical thinkers:
Historical context: Many religions have stories or beliefs that describe God or other divine beings taking human form to interact with humans. For example, in Christianity, Jesus is believed to be the Son of God and took on human form to teach and guide humanity. Similarly, in Hinduism, there are many avatars or incarnations of the gods, such as Vishnu, who take on human form to help people.
Symbolic interpretation: Some people view the concept of God in human form as a symbolic representation of divine qualities or attributes that humans can aspire to. For example, Jesus is often seen as a model of compassion, forgiveness, and selflessness, and his teachings can inspire people to live more virtuous lives.
Personal experience: For many believers, the concept of God in human form is based on personal experiences of feeling a connection to a higher power or divine presence. While these experiences cannot be scientifically proven or objectively verified, they can be powerful and transformative for individuals.
Open-mindedness: Ultimately, the concept of God in human form is a matter of belief and faith, and it may not be possible to convince critical thinkers who are skeptical or have different beliefs. However, it is important to approach the topic with an open mind, respect for different viewpoints, and a willingness to engage in constructive dialogue and exchange of ideas.
My eyes popped out of my head! This Bot has an impressive ability to utilize human language better than I do!

Chat GPT: Explain the Holy Spirit
I am testing the platform! I typed in a simple question. "Explain the Holy Spirit. Here is what came back in under 30 seconds....
Chat:GPT writes:
The Holy Spirit is a fundamental concept in Christianity, and it refers to the third person of the Trinity, alongside God the Father and Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is often described as a divine force or power that is present in the world and within believers, guiding and empowering them in their spiritual journey.
According to Christian theology, the Holy Spirit is eternal, uncreated, and coequal with God the Father and Jesus Christ. It is believed that the Holy Spirit was present at the creation of the world, and that it played a key role in inspiring and guiding the prophets and apostles throughout history.
In the New Testament, the Holy Spirit is often associated with various gifts and abilities, such as wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, prophecy, and speaking in tongues. These gifts are believed to be given to believers by the Holy Spirit as a way of building up the Church and spreading the message of Christ.
In addition to its role in empowering and guiding believers, the Holy Spirit is also seen as a comforter and advocate, providing strength and support during times of difficulty and adversity. It is believed that the Holy Spirit intercedes on behalf of believers, communicating their needs and desires to God the Father.
Overall, the Holy Spirit is a central and essential aspect of Christian belief, representing the presence and power of God in the world and in the lives of believers.
[/qs] Now im curious as to how specifically this platform is programmed.
By the way, Percy this platform may interest you.

Re: Chat GPT: Explain the Holy Spirit
You seem a bit late. ChatGPT has been around for quite some months now.
It learned from data from the internet. It will change the way a lot of people work. An increasing part of future internet data will be AI generated. When new AI models are trained using this data, the models may be "learning" from each other. This includes each others mistakes. At some point, who knows, they may develop their own kind of language when speaking to each other back and forth.
