The answer to how a Christian can follow the Bible and the creation account in Genesis and still accept the validity of the theory of evolution is quite simple; the creation account serves its purpose metaphorically, rather than literally. The idea that religious meaning can be gained from a metaphorical story in the Bible is widely held by a great many religious people including some who are accomplished scientists.
