What I just heard was: "yes, genesis is literally to be understood metaphorically."
Essentially, yeah. The language of the creation story in Genesis is clearly metaphoric language, though it is referring to the actual creation of the heavens and the earth by Almighty God. And the problem with those who twist that metaphoric language into a literal account of natural history is that they become blind not only to what science teaches us about natural history but as well to the deeper and more profound truths revealed in the Genesis story itself.
