Asking ChatGPT about the origin of the Genetic code
It is interesting to see, how ChatGTP is trained to give answers that support naturalistic views, and even claim philosophical answers to be scientific, while they are not, and characterizing Intelligent Design as religious and philosophical answers.
Here, for example, it makes demonstrably false claims: “It is not accurate to say that the genetic code cannot be the product of natural selection. Rather, it is widely considered to be the result of natural selection and evolution”.
Then, when called out, it insists: There is a significant body of evidence that supports the conclusion that the genetic code has evolved through natural selection.
Then, he commits two errors at the same time: It is important to note that the theory of abiogenesis and the theory of evolution are not mutually exclusive.
When called out, he corrects itself: In regards to the relationship between abiogenesis and evolution, it is indeed correct that they are mutually exclusive in the sense that they address different questions.
Next, he resorts to self-organization: Some scientists have proposed that the genetic code may have arisen through a process of self-organization, or that it was established early in the evolution of life through mechanisms such as natural selection.
Then another incorrect assertion: The idea that a creator or intelligent designer was responsible for the origin of life and the genetic code is a philosophical or religious belief and is outside the scope of scientific inquiry.
He apologizes several times: I apologize for any confusion or misinformation caused by my previous answers, and I hope that this clarifies my role as an AI language model and the limitations of the information I can provide.
Well, if the engineers train the Chatbot to give the right answers, maybe next time….. or maybe not ?!!
