Day-Age Theory

The Bible says that God created the heavens and the earth in six days. Were those days six literal days? Or were they ages of times? There seems to be some debate about the length of a day, because Moses suggests a day equals the time from sundown to sundown (evening and morning was one day (Genesis 1). However, 2 Peter 3:8 says "a day with the Lord is as a 1000 years..." Does the Bible contradict itself? Was creation 6, 1000 year time periods? Ben and Mike discuss.
