    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 it's presented here as "realistic" it requires a great deal of arbitrary 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.
