Does science exist, if God doesn't?

Scientists have always been believed to have a distinct attribute - reasoning. 

A couple of days ago, I was exploring the ways to prove something scientifically. Proof by induction, by contradiction, direct proofs. For the sake of curiosity, I started digging in deep to find out if there's something that has been accepted but not yet proven. My findings turned out to be shocking. Let me introduce a few examples first:

When studying system of Numbers, we have established that numbers exists, like Natural numbers. Then we further devise certain rules to make them usable. Like Rule A: 1 is a Natural number. Rule B: adding 1 to a Natural number gives us a Natural number. But is there a mathematical proof that  N + 1 = N? A common mind would call this a senseless question, claiming that it is obvious. But mathematics doesn't function on how correct something feels. It demands complete proof to declare something "obvious".

The answer is that there is no proof because we assum…
