God is the first principle of all truth

You've probably heard of the atheist bus ad campaign in Great Britian. If you haven't, several months ago, an atheist campaign raised money to put several ads in the city buses with the tagline: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”

Al Mohler responds:
"I do not believe in God because I have become convinced that his existence is probably true, but because I am convinced that the existence of God is the first principle of all truth. The Christian conviction is not based in probability, but in the assurance of God's existence and self-revelation.

So, in an odd and completely unexpected sense, I am actually thankful for the atheist bus campaign in Britain. When the best atheists can come up with is a message that God probably does not exist, the weakness of the atheist intellectual position becomes clear."
