The rules of sentence formation are so complex that babies must presumably possess an innate syntax-gathering machinery, rather than having to figure out the rules for themselves. The existence of such a natural mechanism would explain why infants learn to speak so effortlessly, and at a specific age, as if some natural developmental program is being rolled out at that time. Evolution has not yet had time to engineer similar programs for reading and writing, which is why they must be taught so laboriously in school. ~ Page # 8 "Faith Instinct" ~ Nicholas Wade
