Those who have not studied mathematics know that it is not in some sense a science. Mathematics does not study anything, it is not a science like physics or chemistry. Mathematician simply make up rules as Euclid did and prove things from them but the entire discipline is artificial. The nature of proof is to reason about things which are artificial. Mathematicians can prove things logically because they are not constrained by reality.
On the other hand, sciences don’t prove things; they find evidences to support this theories. Sciences like chemistry and physics do not study natural phenomena and from the theories, evidence are developed. For example when scientists found the existence of Higgs Boson they used the 5-sigma “certainty”. They did not find the Higgs Boson but find evidence for it.
When newton propose the theory of gravity,he did not write a proof of it.Things in science are not proven; they are inferred from observation.For example when you consider medical science theory that “the sun causes cancer”.There is no proof but evidently using statistical correlations between cancer rates and exposure,the theory can be asserted.
We allow uncertainty in statistical methods in science, we never get nor expect the proof of the result. However, when we investigate religious matters we expect just the opposite.
Imagine someone walking outside once and saying that their is no proof that the sun causes cancer. That would be considered unscientific yet such arguments are often made against the existence of God. For example someone prays for something, he doesn’t get then despairs and says that God doesn’t exist. When tragedies occur people ask why God could allow evil in the world. This is a faulty proof based on unfounded expectations.
Einstein’s stated “God doesn’t play dice with the world”. Donald Knuth opposed Einstein’s statement by saying “If Einstein’s assertion were true, God would be prohibited from using the most powerful methods”. That God should play dice. Donald Knuth book observes that many of the best computer algorithms make effective use of randomization. It makes perfect sense that God should play dice.
We now can confidently say that no one should question the existence of God simply because God is the beginning and the end. We are just in between and by faith is how we get to understand how the universe came to be.
