I am also a Bible believer. But where do you stand on the age of the earth?

I'm with Francis Collins on this issue, I view Genesis 1-11 as poetic and non-literal history. So I view the days mentioned in Genesis 1 to be periods of time and not literal 24 hour days. I suppose I will put supporting arguments for this position in round 2.

I'm not certain I can begin debating this in the next 5 days, would you be willing to repost this debate if I am not?
