Nope, that won't convince them.

Nothing will.

I have a bunch of creationists in my family, and even the educated ones eventually retreat to a Matrix-like circular logic if pressed hard. An example would be radionuclide dating - they will eventually argue that the world is really 6800 years old but all the isotopes & fossils and such were made by the creator to make the Laws of Physics make it look like things (like the planet & universe) are billions of years old. They don't get that Scientifically, if you accept that prima facie, it means that saying "the world is really 6800 years old" is a meaningless statement.
