    If the earth was 6500 years old, we'd all be swimming in lava right now.

    almost all scientists accept that 4.5 by age as likely the truth.  I would say that they "agree", although it isn't quite an agreement so much as an individual evaluation wherein each scientists comes to the same conclusion.  The evidence and logic lead to the same conclusion that the earth formed approximately 4.5 billion years ago, and there is little reliable information to suggest otherwise, so the individual scientist will almost always "agree" with that age.

    In general around 4.5 billion years. I have not seen any other figure in the last 40 years and more.

    It is, of course, impossible to be exact. The Earth did not suddenly form in a single instant. Giving time frames in billions of years means there has to be some leeway either side of the figure. However, it is generally accepted that the Earth is 4.543 billion years old ± 50 million years.

    There might be a bit of contention after a few significant figures but about 4.5 bn years is pretty much accepted by all.

    Not universally, but the overwhelming majority agree that it's  4.54 billion years old, plus or minus about 50 million years.

    Yes. The age of the Earth is well established fact.
