Yes: the latest Pope did that as well. They are actually the intellectual opposite of each other as one asserts that we can prove there is no God, theism by contrast asserts you can prove there is and agnosticism asserts that you simply can't prove it either way because you have no idea how to go about doing it.

Typically most people like to believe they have supernatural powers - pray for miracles, guardian angel to protect them from harm, that sort of thing.
Of course: however if you believe Nietzsche those kind of things are examples of slave morality.
