Chomsky quote source

I am urgently looking for the source of a Chomsky quote. In an article from time magazine, in the sixth paragraph of the article at , time writes:

''Only a few weeks ago, the pure-science linguist Noam Chomsky, in another change of mind, said he now thinks a divine power gave us language in a single, inspired stroke. ''

I have been assured by some that there is no way Chomsky would of said this. Yet, if it is ''in another change of mind'', can anyone on this list please inform me as to where Chomsky said this, and the context? That would be so very helpful.
