Why are things transparent?

Because the light waves travel through its molecules. Alternative answer: Light waves have a dual nature; one electromagnetic and another a photonic wave. These waves travel through air, hitting all kinds of objects. Some of these objects are transparent (glass), which allow the light waves to pass only in the form of photonic wave. After the light wave pass through the object (glass), it obtains back its dual nature.
