Defending Christianity

Well, I had a discussion with my mom (a Christian) recently. She wanted me to try and look at both sides of the argument (regarding Christianity and Atheism), so I did. I used Google and tried for hours upon hours looking for some sort of proof for Christianity. The surprising thing is: I found none. Well, to be fair, there were a few select websites that had some proof. Proof that I had discarded because they were using texts from inside the bible as their so-called "proof". So, since Christians have no proof to make them believe, what does make them believe? Well, here is an excerpt from www.explorefaith.org:

"What proof is there that Christianity is not a myth created to assuage our fears about death? None at all. Christianity doesn't propose proof; instead it invites faith. Not in facts and data, but in truth - which is often to be found in myth."

Here's the direct link in case you don't believe that they would actually say this: here.
That answer is incredibly contradictory. How can there be truth without proof? So myths are now considered to be truth? And my mom wonders why I laugh at people when they are praying...

There is no proof whatsoever for any religion that believes and worships a god or gods.
