An atheist commented: "Consider the fact that: 1. Nobody has seen god 2.The only evidence exists in an ancient book 3.Science, which is proven, contradicts a lot in that book."
Let's look at her points:
1. Nobody has seen the wind but we believe in it because we see things moving. In the same way, we can see God move in people, cultures and events.
2. Evidence for God exists in the faith of millions throughout history. It's found in changed lives and transformed cultures. And the Bible, that "ancient book," is itself an evidence having more proof for validity than any other book in history.*
3. Proven science and history support the Bible. It's unproven scientific theories like evolution that seek to discredit Scripture.
But there is one proven fact: The world's wisdom misleads people. God's wisdom saves people (1Corinthians 1:18-31).

I encourage you to read "On the Boat" to see why God says unbelievers are "without excuse."
