This blog post for me is quite interesting to say the least. We all marvel with what Artificial Intelligence (AI) can do nowadays, with easily passing MD exams, prestigious university entry exams, etc. it’s no surprise that AI is currently a hot topic with all these new advancements and capabilities. For me, I wanted to test it out with a topic that I knew I would be exclusively well learned in the subject matter of; Templarism. Specifically, I wanted to know what AI “thought” about what OSMTJ was/is.
Here is what AI had to say:
“The Ordre Souverain et Militaire du Temple de Jérusalem (OSMTJ), also known as the Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem, is a fraternal organization that was founded in the early 1990s. It claims to be the continuation of the original medieval Order of the Temple of Jerusalem, also known as the Knights Templar, a Christian military order that was active during the Crusades.
The modern OSMTJ is a non-profit organization that is active in various charitable and humanitarian efforts, including disaster relief and support for those in need. It is also involved in promoting and preserving the cultural heritage of the original Knights Templar and their legacy of chivalry and service to others.
One of the distinctive features of the OSMTJ is its use of medieval-style rituals and ceremonies, which are meant to evoke the spirit of the original Order of the Temple of Jerusalem. The organization also places a strong emphasis on spiritual development and the growth of its members, and encourages them to participate in activities that foster community and fellowship.
While the OSMTJ claims to be the continuation of the original Knights Templar, its historical claims have been met with skepticism by some experts in the field. The original Order of the Temple of Jerusalem was disbanded in the early 14th century by the Pope and King Philip IV of France, and many of its members were executed. Some historians question whether a direct line of continuity exists between the medieval order and the modern OSMTJ.
Despite these historical debates, the OSMTJ remains an active and vibrant organization, with chapters and members all over the world. Its focus on charity, community, and spiritual growth has resonated with many people, and the organization continues to attract new members and engage in important humanitarian work.
In conclusion, the OSMTJ is a modern fraternal organization that seeks to continue the legacy of the original Knights Templar through its charitable work and cultural preservation efforts. While its historical claims are the subject of debate among scholars, the organization remains a vibrant and active community that is dedicated to making a positive difference in the world.”
Virtually every member of the order that reads this, will have a nice little chuckle, many will even start making corrections as they’re reading the article, a few are going to go to ChatGPT and try to teach it about OSMTJ. I was one of those few.
AI is great, it is indeed impressive, but, it surely does have a long way to go, but hey, that’s just my opinion. However, I’m very sure that if you pair up AI against the top people of their respective fields on a debate, I’m very certain that people will still reign supreme. At least for now!
