    Some aliens slapped together some space dust. Duh.
    How do I know that I'm not just a brain floating in a jar in some crazy scientist's lab receiving elecrical signals from the scientist?

    The Earth doesn't know either. Why else would it support us, yet still kill off large numbers of us during natural disasters?

    Why are parents completely clueless when one tries to get a message across, yet manage to pick up on the sibtlest things that one wishes they were unaware of?

    Because humans are only good at doing things that shouldn't.

    Why do I read this forum?

    This forum has a life force and so reading if makes you live and if you don't read it, you will die.

    What is our future destined to become.

    An infinite expanse of very low energy level mush where atoms have minimal movement and so no life can exist.

    What would you do if your parents made you a we know you are gay cake and you were technically heterosexual but transgendered.

    Because of all the fireflies!

    Where will the world be economic-wise, based on the previous patterns throughout history, in the year 3098?

    There won't be a global economy because of the zombie apocalypse.

    Why do human beings crave love?

    Because love is the most dangerous drug out there and we're all just addicts.

    What happens after we die?

    There is some otherdimensional creature propelling our silly world through the 4th dimension, similar to how you might teleport an ant on a sheet of paper by bending that through the 3rd dimension.

    What makes knowledge, and how can we quantify it?

    We get knowledge by doing things and we quantify it by counting how many times we've done something in regards to a specific thing.
    Why do we sometimes care much more about fictitious characters that obviously aren't real than we do about certain people?

    Say the inanimate object is a room and the person is your friend. IN the room you can feel happiness FOR your friend, and due to the reflexive property: happiness = happiness.

    How best can we humans explain ourselves to Aliens?

    Sorry, I guess I changed my question a bit too late. to not cause confusion for others, my original question was: "Why do we sometimes hold the same emotions in certain inanimate objects as we do for certain people?"

    To answer your new questions, we don't. We simply submit to them and do their bidding.

    Why must our bodies be designed in a way where we require certain nutrients to be consumed but have other nutrients be produced inside our bodies as opposed to be 100% self sufficient?

    Why can't people have a civil political discussion with opposing views?

    Because people like rapping when they talk.
    Why do people become attracted to animated characters that aren't human even though people don't get attracted to real life non-human organisms?

    Because the pixels have a mind of their own, and they captivate beyond real human capability.

    What's a word that describes the feeling of losing something you never had?
