WTF is up with this search for replicator "substances"? Are they seriously waiting for a Watson & Crick moment?

Isn't there already something called "learning" which has a pretty distinguished history in a field called "psychology"? Shouldn't they start by describing human perception, memory and learning, and how with these we are able to learn languages. Then they can ask how these cognitive functions might have evolved in an environment with or without protolanguage.

We don't need a long, wobbly bridge from linguistics directly to natural selection theory in order to reject linguistic nativism.
