Well, exactly. There is no such thing as a "rigorous scientific proof".
Asking for one just reveals a misunderstanding of science. You can have a
rigorous mathematical proof, or a scientific theory that agrees with
empirical observation and is consistent with other theories, but you cannot
mix the two and somehow arrive at a proof of a theory.
