I think you just completely missed the part where we actually
understand what's computable. Yes, this even applies to quantum
computers. We have a pretty good idea of what they can do, too, and
it's not magic.
There are probably new laws to be discovered in computing, and we
still haven't proved whether P = NP or not, but when we prove
something in computer science, it's proven. I don't know how I can be
any more clear than that.
Next you'll be telling me that it's not completely impossible for 2 +
2 to equal 5.
