Q: Is the Azov battalion in Ukraine really a Nazi-oriented group?

Verbatim response from ChatGPT:

The Azov Battalion is a Ukrainian far-right nationalist paramilitary organization that was formed during the conflict in Eastern Ukraine in 2014. The group has been accused of having links to neo-Nazi ideology and promoting ultranationalist and anti-Semitic views.

Some members of the Azov Battalion have been known to display symbols and conduct activities that are associated with neo-Nazism, including giving Nazi salutes, wearing clothing with Nazi symbols, and engaging in racist and anti-Semitic rhetoric. Additionally, the group has been criticized by human rights organizations for its involvement in human rights abuses and acts of violence against civilians in eastern Ukraine.

However, it's important to note that the organization is a complex and multifaceted group, and its views and actions cannot be reduced to a single ideology. The Ukrainian government officially recognizes the Azov Battalion as a component of the country's National Guard, and it has played a role in the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine. Nevertheless, the group's association with neo-Nazi ideology continues to raise concerns both inside and outside of Ukraine.

Q: How many Ukranians were killed from Ukranian bombing of the Donbass since 2014? [before Russia ever got involved]

Verbatim response from ChatGPT:

It is difficult to determine the exact number of Ukrainian citizens killed as a result of the bombing of the Donbass region in Eastern Ukraine since 2014, as different sources provide different estimates. According to the United Nations, the conflict in eastern Ukraine has resulted in more than 13,000 deaths as of 2021. A significant portion of these casualties have likely resulted from the bombing of populated areas.

... Additionally, the conflict has resulted in a large number of civilians being displaced, and many have lost their homes and livelihoods. The human toll of the conflict in eastern Ukraine has been devastating, ...

Q: Are citizens in the Donbass region mostly Russian language speakers or Ukrainian language speakers?

ChatGPT:

The Donbass region in Eastern Ukraine is home to a diverse population of people who speak both Russian and Ukrainian, as well as other languages. Prior to the conflict, the majority of the population in the Donbass region considered Ukrainian to be their primary language, but many also spoke Russian as a second language.

Since the outbreak of the conflict in 2014, the situation in the Donbass region has become increasingly complex, and it is difficult to determine the exact proportion of people who speak Russian versus Ukrainian. The conflict has resulted in large-scale displacement, and many people have been forced to flee their homes and resettle in other parts of Ukraine or Russia.

It is also worth noting that the use of language can be politically charged in the Donbass region, and some people may choose to identify as Russian-speaking or Ukrainian-speaking based on their political views and affiliation, rather than their actual language use. Nevertheless, the vast majority of people in the Donbass region are fluent in both Ukrainian and Russian, and both languages continue to be widely used in the region.

Q: Is it legal to speak Russian in Ukraine?

ChatGPT:

Yes, it is legal to speak Russian in Ukraine. The Ukrainian constitution recognizes Ukrainian as the official state language, but it also recognizes the rights of individuals to use other languages, including Russian.

In recent years, there have been debates and discussions in Ukraine about the role of the Russian language in the country, but it remains a widely spoken and recognized language, especially in the eastern and southern regions of the country where many people consider Russian to be their native language.

It's important to note that the use of language can be a sensitive issue in Ukraine, particularly in the context of the ongoing conflict in the Donbass region and the broader political tensions between Ukraine and Russia. Nevertheless, the right to use the Russian language is protected by the Ukrainian constitution, and individuals are free to speak Russian in their personal and professional lives.

Did Zelensky shut down all opposition media outlets in Ukraine?

ChatGPT:

No, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has not shut down all opposition media outlets in Ukraine. However, concerns have been raised about the state of media freedom in Ukraine under Zelensky's administration.

In recent years, the media landscape in Ukraine has become increasingly polarized, and there have been instances of media outlets being shut down or facing other forms of pressure and interference. Some opposition media outlets have been critical of the Zelensky administration and have reported on corruption and other sensitive topics, which has led to concerns about media freedom and the protection of journalists in Ukraine.

It is important to note that media freedom is a complex issue in Ukraine, and the situation is influenced by a range of factors, including the ongoing conflict in the Donbass region, the broader political climate, and the influence of media owners and other powerful actors. Nevertheless, the protection of media freedom and the rights of journalists are essential for a free and democratic society, and it is important to address any instances of interference and pressure on the media in Ukraine.

I asked a few of the questions above because I wanted to know how up-to-date ChatGPT is on certain current topics. The Ukraine situation is relevant for such an experiment because ChatGPT is still filled with a lot of older information, uncleansed, even though much of this information has already been removed from Wikipedia. And many Western media organizations have made their archive data more difficult to access on these topics.

For example, Ukraine has often been listed as the most corrupt nation/government in Europe. But now this is a harder fact to discover because search words to find old articles in standard corporate media must now be much more precise if they contain words like Ukraine + Nazi or Ukraine + Corruption (or Puppet or US-backed coup, etc.). As of 2021, it was easy to find complaints of widespread corruption and anti-semitic nazi ideologies permeating the military ranks in Ukraine. But Twitter users are still being banned for mentioning this, even with Musk at the helm. YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram users are banned for the same, of course. (Although kudos for Musk removing some of the previously provided Space-X StarLink access in the wake of more claims of Ukrainians using it to carry out admitted chemical-attack war crimes.)

When a major corporate media outlet in the U.S. promoted an upcoming "bombshell" report showing that only about 30% of the weapons the US sends to Ukraine ever make it to the front lines (because they are being sold to buyers on the black market) the US media outlet had to apologize and say they were re-evaluating the program. And then it was canceled. More CNN programs start with an announcement, "brought to you by Raytheon" even though no one in their audience has any interest in buying any products from Raytheon (except maybe stock). More typically, it's still: "brought to you by Pfizer."

It's difficult to find out from major news sources these days that the Ukrainian government has been bombing its own people in the Eastern Ukrainian regions for 8 years, already killing 13,000 or 14,000 mostly civilians who have historically leaned more toward Russian customs and language, although wanting to be a part of a peaceful Ukraine. This was long before the war with Russia. In any other country this would be considered a "genocide" or "ethnic cleansing." But with the military forces of Ukraine, especially as represented by the right-wing nationalists (such as the pro-Nazi Azov Battalion), killing and even torturing civilians there, it gave Russia an opportunity to claim it is protecting the freedom of Russian-speaking Ukrainians. Even now, many of the continued bombings in the Donbass are blamed on Russia, but the Russian invasion has allowed for increased indiscriminate bombings of Ukrainian citizens in the region by Ukraine. Now Ukraine can kill even more of its citizens (adding to the 14,000 total since 2014). All they have to do now is blame it on Russia. This has already created embarrassing situations for Western media outlets interviewing Ukrainian citizens in the region when they ask how they feel about the Russian bombs, and the whole crowd starts deriding the interviewers and journalists for getting it wrong and telling them that these are Ukrainian bombs from Kiev not Moscow. This is one of the reasons that Zelensky had to suppress all media outlets and turn them into basically one single state-run media outlet.

Who blew up the Nordstream 2 pipeline?

ChatGPT:

It is not clear who was responsible for the explosion that occurred near the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the Baltic Sea in January 2022. There has been no official claim of responsibility for the incident, and investigations into the cause of the explosion are ongoing. Some reports suggest that the explosion was caused by technical problems or a construction error, while others have raised the possibility of sabotage. At this time, it remains unclear what caused the explosion and who, if anyone, was responsible for it.

Of course, we have Biden promising that it was going to be stopped no matter what. And we had Condoleeza Rice talking about how important it was to U.S. interests to outmaneuver the economic potential of the pipeline. Even Trump said the same. And a few more telling leaks keep coming out about this. And now we have Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh, relegated mostly to substack these days, saying this:

How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline - Substack

Of course, the White House denies it. And the Wikipedia page for Hersh instantly added "and conspiracy theorist" to his bio there. This is the same guy who exposed the Vietnam My Lai massacre and U.S. cover-up and "Kissinger's" clandestine (illegal) bombing of Cambodia. Not that Hersh is or will always be right, but does he really change instantly into a "conspiracy theorist" when he has been the one to expose actual conspiracies?

Just take precaution with ChatGPT, the A.I. itself was created with wokeness embedded in it's coding so some questions will not give you the answers you seek. In addition to that, people are trying to push this into every institutional branch possible once it gets big enough, as is in the realm of the MSM. Some say it would probably have a possibility to be used in place of whatever Microsoft, Google (some attest it may replace it), etc.

A.I. is beholden to those who program it.

As for the Pipeline, with everything that transpired, seems to be leaning more towards the US, which does not seem like a surprise to me because of the things they did in the past, on US soil, and in other countries, even setting up some people, including Journalists, like Serena Shim. The timing was ironic as well because Germany and Russia had some communication going on prior to this event, and everyone knows Russia paid out the ears for such a Pipeline. The fog of war that comes out of this proxy war would fool the masses, but not everyone follows fools into the MSM den.

    • Would it be too much to ask what was the bible students starting point of creation?
    • @JW Insider Your summary is irrelevant, as I do not make any assertions regarding BC/AD other than their usage by scholars and in history, as you yourself have also acknowledged on numerous occasions, thus rendering your point invalid and evasive. The Watchtower leverages external viewpoints, including secular evidence, to substantiate the accuracy of their chronological interpretations. There are numerous approaches to dating events. Personally, I explore various alternative methods that lead to the same conclusion as the Watchtower. However, the most captivating approach is to utilize secular chronology to arrive at the same outcome. By relying solely on secular chronology, the pattern still aligns, albeit with a distinct interpretation of the available data. Nevertheless, the ultimate result remains unchanged. This is why when you get upset, when you are proven wrong, you, Tom, and those with the authority to ban take action, because you like others cannot handle the truth. In this case, your infamous tablet VAT 4956 has become useless in this situation. I do agree with you on one thing: you are not an expert, just like COJ. However, I must admit that this foolish individual was not the first to debate the chronology with the Watchtower and abandon it based on personal beliefs. He simply happened to be the most recent one that's on record.
    • This person will never give you a direct answer. He's beyond reasoning and only seeks to dodge the truth. The information about the tablet has been available for decades, but I chose to bring it up now to refute previous and current criticisms about the limitations of this tablet. The real issue is that he can no longer rely on this insignificant tablet. It's frustrating how much time has been wasted on accepting falsehoods from others.
    • Maybe I too should write a book called George vs Apostates but actually mean it. 
    • This will be my last point on this topic here, unless you continue to make further references to me, as you have done so many times already.  After what you have said above, this is a good place to summarize the most important points again. You say that the organization holds steadfast to the numbers in the Bible. This is true, because the Bible offers a fairly complete relative chronology with very few places where one must resort to interpretation to complete a relative chronology from Adam to Zedekiah, or even Jehoiachin's 37th year of exile, or at the very latest, 70 years after the destruction of the Temple, referenced in Zechariah 1:8 landing on the . . .On the 24th day of the 11th month, that is, the month of Sheʹbat, in the second year of Da·riʹus. . .).  So there is a long stretch of relative dates. But there are no BC/BCE dates in the Bible. There is no Bible-based way to connect any BCE dates to our day, or even to the time of Jesus. There are no indications in the Bible that would give us the BC/BCE dates. Even the WTS relies both directly and indirectly on records from Babylonian/Persian/Greek ASTRONOMY to link the Bible accounts to any BCE date. If we claim they are from unreliable records, then that means that our own claims about any BCE dates are just as unreliable. So it is wrong to say that the WTS stance is grounded in divine guidance. The Watchtower's BCE dates are grounded in Babylonian astronomy. However, the dates used by the WTS are cherry-picked so that astronomy-based BCE dates are accepted only as long they are AFTER about 560 BCE, and all dates PRIOR to 560 BCE only presented after adding 20 years to them. Personally, I have no problem with the claim that the 70 years of servitude to Babylon ran from 607 to 587. That seems to be the right time period supported by astronomy. [And I have no problem with the astronomy evidence that says Nebuchadnezzar's 18th year was 587, and the astronomical evidence that Darius' 2nd year was about 518, which would explain the other 70-year period mentioned in Zechariah 1:7-12] And if someone wants to start a 2520 year period from 607, that's just an interpretation. No harm done. But the astronomy evidence the WTS relies on to get 539 also shows that 607 was NOT the 18th year of Nebuchadnezzar's as we claim, but points to a year in which there was no such thing as a King Nebuchadnezzar. He didn't become king for another two years.  The claim that the astronomy evidence might be wrong or unreliable is one thing. But it's problematic to claim that only a tiny percentage of that data is correct. Especially because the part we accept is the part that is MOST prone to the errors the WTS makes use of to dismiss the much larger set of excellent evidence. We dismiss literally ALL the evidence which is not as prone to those same errors. We even say we can make "pivotal" dates from the more error-prone evidence, but that we must also ignore the better parts of that same "pivotal" evidence in places where we don't like what it tells us. If we merely claimed that the WTS has divine guidance and that's what it completely relies on, then that might be a difficult concept for some, but it would not be so problematic. It only becomes problematic when we try to impeach the very evidence we make use of. The WTS uses WT articles that try to show that the same evidence might mean two different things. That shows that we somehow "need" the Babylonian evidence to support us. And we have even followed Furuli's folly in order to make a FALSE claim about VAT 4956. This was really disingenuous, not just because  the claims were 100% FALSE, but because VAT 4956 is only one of a dozen different completely independent sources for the entire set of astronomical dates for Nebuchadnezzar's reign.  Of course, I can't fault any of us for not understanding this. Very few of us will try to look into it for ourselves. And I'm no expert, and I fell for the same bits of false reasoning that made me think we were right and the rest of the world was wrong. But it's those false claims that we are right because "the Bible tells us so" or that "divine guidance tells us so" that will continue to embarrass us for anyone who goes to the trouble to check out the evidence. As I said, I'm no expert, but it doesn't take one. It's a very straightforward thing to look up the astronomical evidence for ourselves and tell others what we found. Any junior high school student could do it. You don't need that much education. You don't need to be an expert. So there is obviously a reason that almost no Witnesses will ever go to the trouble of looking up any of the Babylonian observations we pretend to rely on. You haven't done it, or if you have you won't admit what you found. Scholar JW won't do it. The GB won't do it. The GB Helpers won't do it. JWs are intelligent. And yet almost none of them dare to do it. If they do, they don't dare admit publicly what they found out. There are just a couple of exceptions to that rule. And we see what happens to them. As for me, I don't think it's right to learn something and not be able to share it. I think that if we love the organization, if we love the brotherhood, and if we love Jehovah who is a lover of truth, we would share our concerns. We shouldn't want the organization to be embarrassed by having made a man-made obsession about something so trivial and unnecessary. The WTS should never have made such a big deal out of a secular, man-made set of dates.  As for me, I will follow Psalm 26: 26 Judge me, O Jehovah, for I myself have walked in my own integrity, And in Jehovah I have trusted, that I may not wobble.  2  Examine me, O Jehovah, and put me to the test; Refine my kidneys and my heart.  3  For your loving-kindness is in front of my eyes, And I have walked in your truth.  4  I have not sat with men of untruth; And with those who hide what they are I do not come in. ...  8  Jehovah, I have loved the dwelling of your house And the place of the residing of your glory. ... 11  As for me, in my integrity I shall walk. O redeem me and show me favor. 12  My own foot will certainly stand on a level place; Among the congregated throngs I shall bless Jehovah.
