CHICAGO (Reuters) - Babies who use many gestures to communicate when they are 14 months-old have much larger vocabularies when they start school than those who don't, U.S. researchers said on Thursday.

They said babies with wealthier, better-educated parents tend to gesture more and this may help explain why some children from low-income families fare less well in school.

"Invisible Pink Unicorns are beings of great spiritual power. We know this because they are capable of being invisible and pink at the same time. Like all religions, the Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorns is based upon both logic and faith. We have faith that they are pink; we logically know that they are invisible because we can't see them."

Wat ze dus eigenlijk hebben aangetoond is dat intelligente mensen/baby's meer handbewegingen gebruiken, omdat je ervanuit mag gaan dat een hogere intelligentie leidt tot een grotere woordenschat.
That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.
