    Is there a way to change the date of a post? I would like a post's date to appear different than the actual date I post it. ie if I'm posting today, I don't want 11/6/12 to be the date rather 5/4/12 for example.

    you can edit the post's publish date in the 'publish' box when you write or edit a post;
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Posts_Add_New_Screen

    this will obviously influence the position of the post in the loop.

    Try adding your custom date to the post as a custom field and then display that field rather than the true post date.
