Notice: I am inquiring about an article I read this past year that discussed the work of a linguist who discovered a group of people who did not have language for a time and who did not have a creation story or belief in God. I may have read the article in Time Magazine, but cannot locate it. I am interested in sharing the discovery with my students. If this strikes a cord, could you please send me the name of the gentleman who wrote about these people? Thank you so much for your time.
