After weighing all the evidence, I think young earth is more likely.  Years ago I spent a great deal of time researching it.  Alas, I lost many of my sources in a flood, and I have other interests now anyways.  There was something about Niagara falls that intrigued me, something about granite and the halos formed therein, evidence that mankind was around at the same time dinosaurs were here, something about how things like radiation and heat can make yesterday's chicken bones appear millions of years old through carbon dating.  There are many many more examples like these that makes me think young earth is more likely, and that old earth is pushed solely to support evolutionary theory.

Carbon dating only works on organic material, and it's only good for relatively short periods (I think 50,000 years is about the upper limit), so it's completely irrelevant to arguments about the age of the earth (and could never make anything appear to be millions of years old). Age of the earth is calculated by other methods.
