Why do we wear clothes??

Clothes protect us wind, rain, too much sunlight, insect bites, etc.
Wouldn't we have evolved mechanisms to deal with these issues? Or, if you believe in an intelligent source to creation, wouldn't that intelligent creator encode us with protection from these issues? Why are we so disharmonious with nature?

He, in your case, would have said "hang up your clothes fetish and trample it under your feet and do not be afraid"
Since the nakedness he was referring to was the purity of God unadorned by ornamentation of any kind, including sophist argumentation of any kind.

I live in Canada... winter time we would get pretty darn cold if we ran around naked.. -40°, let's say the frost bite would not be fun..

Sanitary reasons, for one.
I don't want to use a public seat after a 400 lb un- showered, non-wiping obese man sits there.
Then, I don't want to watch him walk away.
