Why Do We Soak Grains?

Putting a complicated matter into one paragraph
Grains, like all seeds, are designed by God to pass through the digestive process unscathed so that when... ahem... waste is left, the seeds will still be viable to cultivate new plants.  For the seeds protection, there are anti-nutrients and other compounds that hider digestion and the work of enzymes.  Soaking the grain mimics the sprouting process, which allows these anti-nutrients to be broken down--making the food more digestible.
