What is the source for the force of gravity?

I remember that the force of gravity decreases with the distance from the center of the earth and that the gravity at the center of the earth is ZERO. If this is the case, then what is the source for gravitational force.

Closing Statement from Joe Varghese

Hi All,
Thanks a lot for your replies. I never thought that I would pull in this much of comments for a question like this. I will come back with more school kid questions later. Let me check my book of doubts, which I've been maintaining from my school days.

    Mar 25 2012: sorry, I did not mean to offend or be sarcastic, I really do not understand what you mean by scientific test in the context of your comment. I agree we should not say God to all questions. I meant that gravity is one question we do not have an answer to, like we do not have an answer to "does God exist". God is the answer when we have no other answer.
