WHy Humans are hairless?

All primates have Fur.Apes and monkeys have fur.But we dont.The result is that we cannot go out naked unless the temperature is relatively high.Even at 10 C you get cold.Why this happened?

Well an evolutionist would probably say that it was some harmful mutation, but I think that it was an intelligent designer, who wanted us to work to clothe and shelter ourselves, because if no one works to clothe or shelter you than your race would die off. This works in politics as well, if you give poor people a government incentive for not working,(catch my drift, unemployment benefits) then lots of people decide that they will let someone else work for them, and just reap the benefits, until there aren't enough people to support the ones getting government paychecks, or everyone decides that they don't want to work.
So either an intelligent Designer foresaw this, and tried to make it harder for man, so he would have to work hard to feed and clothe himself, or it just came from a random harmful mutation.
I apologize to anyone who feels offended by my politics example, but it really does explain it.

Or you just pulled your social darwinistic example out of your hat and spouted your ignorance and hatred for the fun of it.
Someon who has heard of science might say that there might be no other reason than the gene was at the wrong place at the wrong moment. Just as what happened to human penile spikes and sensory whiskers:

we do have hair...we're not that hairless...
it just that ours are smaller and shorter and more tender than the apes
