Yes. Those who call for the bible to be taken metaphorically are generally trying to save the bible's face.

No one can really be sure for certain, but I don't think EITHER creation stories in Genesis were written as a metphor. They were the J and P sources best efforts to explain creation. Their knowledge was limited. It was wrong. Should be end of story. However, however, however...
