This sort of explanation of Genesis is roughly 2000 years old. Variants can
be found in Gnosticism, Origen, some versions of Christian Science &c. Though

figurative interpretation. & the notion that our real selves are bodiless spirit
or souls is quite unbiblical & flies in the face of - among other things -
Christian faith in the resurrection of the body.


Which explanation do you mean? The one that requires a knowledge of
evolution? What do you recognize as an arbitrary figurative interpretation? Please
refer specifically.
