    A thought that passed my mind the other day was why does gravity force objects down when something as small as evaporation go up?

    Could this be because gravity doesn't actually make objects 'fall'? Possibly objects are attracted to each other because of the law of attraction.

    No. Gravity always acts. It just doesn't always win. That's why you're able to jump up. That's why airplanes can fly.

    There is no "law of attraction." You just made that up. Gravity always attracts, but electrostatic forces can attract or repel.

    Helium balloons seemingly defy gravity, but that's only if you forget that they're in a sea of air, air which exerts its own forces. Such balloons rise for the same reason that a buoy floats on water. A helium balloon would plummet to the ground if you take away the air.
