Vexx pointed out that metaphors can only be understood when you understand the context of that metaphor. And the Star Trek example is good to show this.

My point is that the context of Genesis is a religion. And that while the context may not be understood, people can still identify those metaphors (just like the Enterprise crew knowing there must be other meanings to what the Darmok is saying), hence why I said it would be obvious to most people.
