    Explanatory power is a measure of the strength of a Theory. So miracles must be a damn good one!

    I just scienced the shit out of that!
    Explanatory power doesn't mean what you think it does.

    A theory that can explain the opposite of what's observed as easily as it explains the actual observations is not a very powerful explanation.

    Yup. Miracles are all power, and no room is left for explanatory.
