Also, JJ, in your OP you said;
The third class of object of science is the supernatural object. This is a non-Popperian postulate of science that has been designed. There are two reasons for this design.
1) to discredit mystical practices and ideas,
2) to establish causal relationships on the basis of non-empirical associations.
Which could be contracted to say;
The third class of object of science .. the supernatural object .. has been designed .. to discredit mystical practices and ideas ..
A supernatural object has been designed to discredit mystical practices and ideas ???
I don't get it. And designed by who or what ?
I suggest you may have to be a little less quixotic for others to engage in your points of interest.
I already gave an example of science's discreditation of mystical practices and ideas, and named the type of objert that they, science, had created to help them do it - they created the supernatural object.
