Are you serious? Richard Dawkins isn't talking about God from a scientific point of view. He is answering the question as an athiest. He's stating his beliefs of God being possible. If he was actually using science to make the 98.5% statement, then he would have some kind of scientific inquiry regarding the subject, yet he just flat out states his opinion on the subject. And you know what they say about opinions.

You're making an assumption.. basically you're hearing/reading him as an atheist and rejecting him as a scientist .. that's foolish.. care to prove it?
This doesn't make any sense.

Really. Creationists do not make a good impression when they reach like this.
Dawkins would be a pretty poor scientist if he claimed 100% knowledge that a god did not exist. He is 6.9 out of 7 that there is no god. That 0.1 does not prove god exists.
What it shows me is there are a lot of people desperate to bolster their faith with any crumb available even if it is Dawkins that supplies that morsel.
The advantage creationists have over science is you dont need proof. You need faith and it looks like you are less sure of the existance of god than Dawkins is that there is no god.

Many people with physics degrees (like myslef) know that god exists. You would know that too if you got your degree.
