How to select text in BASH terminal using the keyboard without mouse?

You can use GNU screen's copy and paste commands.
Screen is much more powerful than that (I use it to tab several virtual terminals without the need for a special terminal emulator, and also so that I don't loose my sessions when X crashes or something). To get out of screen, simply end your shell session, or type ^A ^.
