I think this is pretty obvious. And I don't mean that in a bad way. I am distinctly NOT saying "So what"? This is a very important point you are making here. It's one of those posts I want to read again, and I suggest you elaborate more on. The idea that some kinds of equivalent explanations have more legitimacy is a very strange but true aspect of human life. It's a point on which my understanding differs a lot from other people's. But it's very important for me to develop a stranger understanding of the idea of explanatory equivalency, and this post is a step forward in that direction.
