yes, but since it applies equally to Gods and pasta based entities etc, agnosticism is in general an irrelevent position, wouldn't you say?
Mostly, yes, I would say so, as a practical matter. I may have agnosticism as an epistemological position, but I live my life as if there's no doubt.

The shred of relevance -- or at least the reason we should make a distinction -- is to point out that people really do believe in Superjew inter alia, whereas flying spaghetti and orbiting teapots are admitted spoofs.

Dawkins, for one, rates himself a 6 on his scale of belief of 1 to 7, where 1 is certitude that God exists and 7 is certitude that God does not exist: “I cannot know for certain but I think God is very improbable, and I live my life on the assumption that he is not there.”
