Once booted, launch Terminal from the Utilities menu, then use the command line tool date:
> date 042109582011
which, believe it or not, sets the date to 09:58 on Apr 21st, 2011
(man date has the details on the date format)

Thanks Camelot! I actually gave that a try this morning, and received an error that the framework resources were not available and that the command was not valid. (I'm paraphrasing) I also tried:
sudo date 1104211137
$ date 1104211137
Also using those same operators I tried the date format as: 201140211155.00
(I have no idea what I'm doing in the terminal, so I just took those commands based on various Google search results)
I also tried man systemsetup and going that route through those commands, with no success unfortunately.

You need to put full year in if you didnt figure that out already. I personally keep forgetting this old terminal command, beause I come accross this a lot.
translated to lamens terms.:
date nov 26th 11:05 2013.
Hope this helps for anyone else coming across this posting.

Once you have the D & T corerctly set, go to Apple menu / System Preferences / Date & Time, click the Date & Time tab, and check the box to set date and time automatically.
As long as you have an internet connection you will have the correct D & T.
