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

"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.
