"Eventually science will uncover all mysteries. Those that it can't explain don't exist.
This is the bedrock of Dawkins' argument,"

Not really, read Chapter 2 : The Poverty of Agnosticism:
"The fact that we can neither prove nor disprove the existence of something does not put existence and non-existence on an even footing."

Dawkin merely said that, even though science cannot disprove god, it can make statistical "weighings" of its high unlikeliness.

I know that this is just one of several points from the review but im too sleepy read that wall of text

EDIT: It disapeared :o
