Welcome to the list Tom,

I agree with you. Explanation is much more important. It is also much
more difficult to agree on what *is* a good explanation. Prediction
could remain important, at least in principle, to possibly destroy our
favorite explanation, or to put doubt on them. Have you read the book
by René Thom: "prédire n'est pas expliquer"
