So you believe the Bible is a large metaphor? Again, if the aim of the creation story is not to accurately describe creation, what other purpose does it serve?
I think in reality, the creation story is intended to literally describe creation, whilst intentionally leaving out certain aspects which ultimately results in "interpretation". However when dealing with the origin of life and the universe, I hardly think that such a story should leave room for said interpretation.
