Einstein himself did work on Brownian motion, and Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and Godel's Incompleteness Theorems I and II are mathematically proven. To say that certain classes of quantum and complex reality obey statistical and probabilistic, rather than individual, laws is to assert a degree of randomness on an individual basis for individual members of the sets.
