Did Rush Limbaugh see Jesus? If not, same "logic" applies in this instance.

I don't think of him as being a Christian.

And that is one of the wonders of the scientific method.  That we can see farther than our ancestors who could only make bad guesses and create deities to explain things.

I got to wondering about the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to humans when I found this.  I take it that light is a only a subset of the spectrum, and all that stuff radiating from stars also includes waves besides light like radio, microwave, X-ray, and Gamma, but some of those waves don't penetrate the atmosphere, otherwise we would all be mutants dying of cancer.

So my question is why don't all waves penetrate the atmosphere?  I mean a wave is a wave.   Why do some not pass through?  What's so special about a wave being very short or very long that prevents that passage?  And weirder still, why do the extremely long waves like radio pass through, but slightly less long microwaves don't, and then slightly less long light waves pass through again, and when they become less long than light they again don't make it through?

Some waves interact with gases in the atmosphere and create chemicals.

Stratospheric ozone is formed naturally by chemical reactions involving solar ultraviolet radiation (sunlight) and oxygen molecules, which make up 21% of the atmosphere. In the first step, solar ultraviolet radiation breaks apart one oxygen molecule (O2) to produce two oxygen atoms (2 O) (see Figure Q2-1).

How do you equate an expert in physics to a high priest?  One works within an intellectual framework.  The other works within an intellectual luminiferous Γ¦ther.

That's a good explanation for ultra violet waves.  I take it there must be different explanations for microwaves, x-rays, and gamma rays.  Or do these also react with molecules?  I know that parts of the spectrum are deflected by Earth's magnetic poles, and while that's not the same as a chemical reaction, or not the same as "cannot pass through the atmosphere", I can accept that for now.  So do we have all the waves that don't make it to us accounted for, or are there still more that have to be explained?

Our magnetosphere bounces a lot of the solar wind around the Earth. (Google bait.)

I could be an astronaut too ... if I were a space cadet.

I know the scientific material, it is the credulity of the public that bothers me.

You choose to worship the one, but not the other.  Depends on your ideology.  However go be a scientist yourself (a few of us can if you are young) and then they will know.  Everyone else are idiots in the pews.

And quantum theory proved the vacuum is interesting indeed.  Einstein was wrong about that.  The quantum vacuum doesn't work in the naive mechanical ways that Victorian science imagined though.

I've studied somewhat, but I'm just a layman. I depend on the smart people to give me what I want to know, since I don't have the tools I'd need to do the experiments myself. They're part of my extended brain.
