I think that maths does have a place in proving many things.  Hence, if
something has been conclusively proven by maths and later also confirmed
by circumstantial experiments, etc.; scientifically I would have no
reason to reject its scientific merit.  But, I would not accept anything
that is purely "mathematical modelling" having no concrete basis in
reality nor proving anything in reality.  
Of course I am not after fame. Like they say: "curiosity kills a cat."
