Preternatural

The preternatural or praeternatural labels things or events which appear outside (Latin praeter) the bounds of nature as currently understood. One could consider that such matters belong in science's "too-difficult" basket.

The supernatural forms a sub-set of the preternatural, and assumes higher or mysterious powers.
