A: "If you don't have X, you don't have X" is basically a way of saying "If you don't have X then just accept/admit that you don't have X"..

In other words, do not bother trying to convince someone you actually have X, just accept/admit that you do not have X.

In this case X would be 'proof' (which is similar in meaning to 'evidence').

Q: What does The proof is in the pudding mean?
A: The original saying was "The proof of the pudding is in the eating."

The meaning of this was supposed to be: You can't tell what is in the pudding until you eat it. (You need to experience something yourself before you are sure of it.)

Over time this saying has changed to "The proof is in the pudding" and to those who don't know the history of the original saying, it can sound vague and end up meaning anything you want, really.

But it helps to know the original saying and what it meant.
