Prove it

I want to suggest that scientific proof, philosophical proof and religious proof follow the same rules.
After the question has been defined, in each case proof consists of two steps: 
A. The theory must be non-contradictory and must give an answer to the phenomenon in question.  
B. We must be able to live consistently with our theory.  In other words, the answer must conform to what we observe in a wide consideration of man and how he behaves.
