Dawkins: the agnostic?

You may or may not have been aware of the huge stir this has caused, especially in Christian circles.

But instead of being seen as a bad thing that this may be advertised across London, making the Alpha adverts seem pathetic or feeble in comparison, this gives us hope for one of the most famous and influential atheists alive and kicking today.

'There's probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.'

Probably? Hasn't Dawkins always believed and proclaimed in public that God cannot and does not exist? Has all the Christian resistance actually had an impact on the author and speaker who is the main benefactor for this advert? I think someone's getting agnostic here :)

There has been some discussion of this, apparently anything stronger than this may fall foul of the Advertising Standards Agency.

Dawkins frequently claims that it is very unlikely that there is a God (of any nature and less of a chance that a deity would also just happen to be the Christian one) due to the lack of evidence for the existence of such a being.
