According to chat GPT….

‘ Dunfermline Athletic Football Club are commonly referred to as "the Pars" because "Pars" is short for "Parsees," which is a nickname for the people of Dunfermline. The nickname is thought to have originated in the 19th century, possibly as a reference to the town`s association with the linen industry, which was known as "pars" in local dialect. The nickname has been adopted and embraced by the club and its supporters over the years.‘

Chat GPT is a chatbot, designed to help develop language skills for future use by AI systems. It will mimic human answers, but how reliable its answers are presumably depends on what already-published information it has access to.

ChatGPT exists to remind us how far away we are from Skynet becoming self aware.

It probably already is as it learns from the interactions. Give it 5 minutes with Jeremy Clarkson.

Just to mention that Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust have updated their page on the origins of the Nickname `Pars`.

It is here

Many thanks to the posters on this website who recently contributed to a lively debate.


p.s. Nothing to do with Parsees, Levites or indeed Samaritans.
