Even DNA testing has an element of doubt. It can prove absolutely that
you are not you fathers child but it can't prove absolutely that you
are.

Admittedly the doubt surrounding a DNA test is probably many magnitudes
smaller than any proof that existed hitherto but it is not Zero.

Added to that the possibility of contaminated/mishandled samples and you
still have a quite significant doubt.
