Robert, Mengersen, and Chan (RMC) represent our approach to model criticism in situations when the likelihood cannot be computed (1) as a way to “contrast several models with each other” (2, 3). Moreover, RMC argue that model assessment with Approximate Bayesian Computation under model uncertainty (ABCμ) is unduly challenging and question its Bayesian foundations. We disagree, and clarify that ABCμ is a probabilistically sound and powerful tool for criticizing a model against aspects of the observed data.
