"Obviousness of the universe's age? Look at the earth. Think how long 5 billions years is. Don't you think it would have more obvious signs of age than it does? Don't answer that, I know your response already."

What you're making here is an intuitive argument with no basis on observational data. When confronted with mountains of evidence to the contrary, you can't just point your finger and say 'Look at the world! Of course you're wrong!' That's horrible. Essentially you are admitting your subjectivity. Instead of going forward with a thin pretense of scientific scrutiny, just be honest and say 'God did it' from the start, since that's where all arguments with you lead anyway. You don't use science at your core, so stop using it as a curtain to hide that aspect of yourself.
