Here we go again, the Church wanting their cake and eating it. As many people have said this is a logical fallacy. You either believe that we came from Adam and Eve, which is totally incompatible with Darwinian Evolution, or you believe in Evolution which is totally incompatible with the Bible; they can’t have it both ways.
Yes they can. If something in the bible conflicts with established science it isn't false, it is "metaphorical".

So, Adam and Eve didn't exist but the story is "symbolic" of the "Fall".
