The supernatural is gapology.
Sometimes it is claims about genuine gaps in the totality of human knowledge - filled up with god-did-it-by magic, so as to hide the ignorance of those who will not admit they do not know, or those contriving to put their made-up claims beyond evidenced challenge.

All too often it has been shown to be (now closed) historical gaps in human knowledge at some time in the past,
or even more frequently :-
massive gaps in some creationist's personal knowledge of the science of nature which they are too lazy or bigoted to remedy!
