Whered he get these skills from? Just some food for thought
you keep coming back to the illiterate parents. Literacy is not intelligence. Poeple who never had the opportunity to learn to read and write arent always dumb.
Then there is the lack of early schooling. All I can do is draw a comparison to einstein, who was considered nearly mentally retarded until the age of 12. Some people are just late bloomers.
Im not saying illiterate people are dumb, im saying this: He never went to school, so he didnt learn to read or write there. He didnt learn from his parents, BECAUSE they are illiterate. I dont think anybody has ever been born knowing how to read and write, even einstein learned it somewhere. Hes just quicker than others
