    You can't prove God's real, you can't prove God's not real, until sth substantiates your claim (more than just absence of evidence leaning towards evidence of absence.)

    You can only make an educated guess; the same with most things for which you have no evidence.

    By prove in this context I mean you can't be certain.

    You can only really say God's inexistence is the truest answer, due to the inapplicability of the situation.

    Harsh.

    Also your understanding of evolution is weak at best.

    Science doesnt prove anything, it only attempts to. Any work that is done in Science is an evidence for or against a theory.

    Like the big bang theory is taught as an explanation for the creation of the universe, however, it is quite likely and expected to be disproved with advances in science and replaced with a more correct explanation to the founding of the universe.

    Like one of the people said above, its like an educated guess, in a way.

    anything; proof is a philosophical and mathematical concept.

    But in a less pedantic sense, the scientific method cannot "prove" (i think you're using this as a synonym for "justify" or "demonstrate") is itself, metaphysics, mathematics, for example

    Science doesn't deal in proofs but rather probabilities. This is because it is inductive. It infers.

    Ironically you have many people saying that only science gives knowledge. Known as scientism. Scientism cannot be proved or supported by science in anyway. Since scientism itself is not an empirical hypothesis, not something the truth or falsity of which can be established by empirical scientific means, it is (when not so qualified as to be no longer interesting) self-undermining. Somehow that never seems to weaken its grip over those beguiled by it, despite their oft-purported superior rationality.
