What Is the Most Compelling Scientific Evidence of a Young Earth?

"In the several years since we initially received this question, young-earth creationists have produced many new materials....We have updated the answer with newer resources that will be of interest to those, like Tony, with questions about apologetics, intelligent design, and good resources to share with skeptics." - AiG

I still struggle with AiG's response.  I don't think they address it.  They point to just a few evidences that viewed with a certain lens could support a young earth, but in and of themselves is not a scientific evidence of a young earth.

The more I study Scriptures, the more I am convinced that this question or "proof" will never be answered by science.  Hebrews is very clear when it states, "By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible."  While there is some level of General Revelation that covers there must be a God, I believe that God has purposedly set it in his plan, to make this something we understand by faith, and not by sight (science).  We cannot get a skeptic to believe in Young Earth on scientific proof, yet most members of our church, drive right back into that rut.  Hebrews makes it clear that an individual can only understand this through faith.
