Applied Mathematics vs. Science

I'm an applied mathematician. I (and almost everybody I work with) have very little interest in existence/uniqueness theorems. I have never actually done a proof in the context of my research. In fact, of the literature that I read, I would say 98% (sort of random figure) have no theorem/proofs.
I can't actually name any theorem/proof paper I've read in the last 2-3 years. Okay, that's a lie. I can name one. Written by a Russian.
nice, i want to avoid rigorous thoremes/proof as much as possible
