Yes Joe, it comes very naturally, that is why so many people suck at it (logic and reasoning). What planet are you talking about? Does this planet also have a Miley Cyrus in it like ours?

I am trying to decipher the cognitive mechanisms behind reasoning and reconcile with the fact that most people struggle immensely with it. You (which is perfectly your right) seem to favor theories that assume this struggle is mere illusion and people are actually, deep down, quite logical.
