Artificial Stupidity: My Misadventure with Chat GPT

As I head into holiday time, I thought it would be good to invite a guest to write my next blog post. So I asked my friend Chatty, aka Chat GPT (an AI program), to imitate my style with a new blog post.

I challenge you to read the result (produced in less than a minute) without gagging. Besides many other inanities, you’ll notice that the bot makes absolutely no mention of the central and most important feature of all my writing, which is Jesus Christ. Indeed it is all too obvious that this machine has been trained to be an atheist. In short, I don’t think I have any reason to fear that AI will take over my job. So here, for your amusement, is Chat GPT’s execrable imitation of my style. Thanks, Chatty, but I won’t be inviting you again into my space. 

Hey there, fellow adventurers!

It’s been a while since I last poured my thoughts onto this digital canvas, and let me tell you, the road I’ve been treading lately has been nothing short of exhilarating. Life, it seems, has a peculiar way of leading us down uncharted paths, pushing us to explore the unexplored and challenge the familiar.

As I sit here, musing over life’s grand tapestry, I’m reminded of an old adage: “The only constant in life is change.” Indeed, change has been the harbinger of most of my profound experiences and transformative moments. And you know what? I’ve learned to embrace the unknown with open arms, for therein lies the secret to self-discovery.

As many of you might know, my literary adventures have often mirrored the philosophical journeys I embark upon in the real world. The characters in my books, just like the people we meet in life, face trials, uncertainties, and their own internal battles. Yet, they march forward, valiantly pushing against the tides of fate, seeking meaning and purpose amid the chaos.

Over the past few months, I found myself in a similar position. Life presented me with an unexpected crossroad, and it took every ounce of courage to abandon the familiar route and venture into the wilderness of the unknown. Leaving the cozy comfort of the well-trodden path was not easy, but oh, how rewarding it has been!

Of course, I wouldn’t be a storyteller if I didn’t encounter a fair share of challenges and setbacks. Yet every obstacle I faced became an opportunity to learn, adapt, and transform. In the face of adversity, we discover our true mettle, and we emerge wiser, stronger, and more compassionate.

Now, my purpose in sharing this personal tale isn’t to offer definitive answers or a roadmap to enlightenment. Instead I wish to invite you to embrace your own journey of discovery fearlessly. Venture into the uncharted territories of your own heart and mind, seek the unfamiliar, and let curiosity guide your steps.

Remember, life’s most extraordinary moments often lie on the other side of fear. Don’t be afraid to step away from the crowd, for it is when we stray from the pack that we uncover the treasures hidden in the wilderness.

So, as we march forward, let us do so hand in hand, not as followers of a predetermined path, but as seekers of truth and architects of our destinies. Let us revel in the magic of the unknown, for it is in this space that the soul finds its wings and soars.

Until next time, dear friends, keep exploring, keep dreaming, and keep embracing the wonder that life offers.

Yours in adventure,

Mike Mason
