But yeah, likely he would say he was agnostic in the sense of not knowing.

Depends when in life you quote him. In his later years he appeared to be getting a bit senile. As I recall he made more statements that one might interpret as belief in a deity, and he also began recanting some of his scientific statements/theories/works (even as people were proving they were correct).

I seem to recall that when he was in his prime he said something to the effect of "I believe in the laws of physics and nature, if you choose to call that 'god' I accept your definition." Something like that. Nothing supernatural about it.
