This will make the message much more palatable to most thinking people.

Are "thinking" people really the problem here? Most thinking people I know are already agnostic or atheist.

Sorry to disagree with you, but a well-known narrator's voice carries a meme which can suggest to the, shall we say, semi-thinking listener, that the views being expressed are mainstream and true.

It's a simple argument. Most people would trust David Attenborough's authoritative voice over a total stranger's voice. I'll surmise this would be true even if they knew nothing about Sir David.
