Because clothing is like religion. It's something society forces on people from birth, to the point that they never really question why they have it, and become offended at people who display too little of it.

David D.G.

Human clothing is readily changeable, much better than having to rely on a coat of fur that may be too much or too little covering for comfort. It makes it much easier for us to regulate our body temperatures quickly in response to changing climatic conditions, increasing or decreasing insulation as needed. Our adaptation of intelligence makes clothing possible, and our adaptation of light body hair makes clothing necessary but, in most respects, highly superior to most types of fur.

We don't need clothes. I'm quite happy to wander around naked most of the time.

haha, somebody blows another hole in evolution big enough to drive a truck through, and you don't have any answer for that one, do you? haha.

First we lost our hair, then we got smart, then we got cold, then we made clothes.

I thought the Bible said it was because Eve sinned. Don't fundies usually use the Bible to explain everything?

\"No, Barry. We wear clothes in order to keep warm... and to avoid getting arrested.\"

Maurice Chavez comes through once again.

Because humans developed brains that allowed them to figure out how to stay warm in different climates. Most animals can't leave the climates they're adapted to.

It started because it was cold outside, then religion and society came in and forced it on everyone.

I hate to generlize, but christians ask some of the dumbest questions.

Humans need clothes because some people don't shave their naughty bits and no one wants to see that.
