My girlfriend (never a JW) nearly lost it completely when my mum (very JW, I'm x-JW by the way) was talking to her about the tree and the snake and everything.
I mean, it is ludicrous to take this story literally.
Eve get spoken to by a snake, what does she do? Have a conversation!!
At no point does she yell for Adam and say "Honey, you ain't gonna believe this".
Even given the weasel word explination (Satan used the snake as a puppet), it doesn't explain Eve's reaction.
She knew what snakes were, she'd seen them before, and this one talked. Any reaction? Oh, no, just a normal day in the garden.
And then, when she talks to Adam, it's like... no reaction. 'Oh that's nice darling, pass the fruit'.
It's two choices, either Adam and Eve would have been kicked of Springer for being too dumb, or it's a metaphorical story.
If it is a metaphorical story, then maybe the seven days and seven nights creation stuff is metaphorical, maybe the flood is metaphorical, maybe loads of the Bible is just a story that, maybe, some wisdom can be found in.
