I hope I don't tell you too much that you already know.
Also, since there has been controversy on the net, unless otherwise indicated, all references and quotes are taken from works which I have personally examined.
However, since the "young" and "old" age ranges differ by 5 1/2 orders of magnitude, it is easy to say which pieces of evidence favor which theory.
Also, the arguments I use here deal with the solar system, the earth, and man.
The supporting details are based on study, briefer than I would like, done for this debate.
Wilkening, University of Arizona Press, 1982), the answer is unknown.
By my implication, this indicates that whether the old solar system theory adequately explains observations is also unknown. Presence of small particles in the solar system This is an astronomical observation consistent with a young solar system but which, as in the case of comets, requires extra assumptions if the solar system is old.
The question is whether or not enough comets will be supplied by this mechanism to agree with observations.
Paul Joss, in the above cited reference, calculates "no," by a factor of 40,000. H Delsemme ("Origin of Short-Period Comets," Astronomy and Astrophysics, 7-381, December, 1973) calculates that the answer is "yes."
