No. Neither is a metaphor. From http://www.thefreedictionary.com/face :
Face - 8. The most significant or prominent surface of an object, especially:
a. The surface presented to view; the front.
b. A fašade.
c. Outer surface: the face of the earth.
"She is the apple of my eye" is a metaphor. Eyes don't have an apple. The water has a face, just like a building and a clock.
Look at that. There's clues everywhere if your good enough.
"She is the apple of my eye" What does that mean?
It means extreme love. It means protection .
Adam and Eve eating an apple represents the separation

from One and entering a material world. I world where we are all guaranteed death .
It is just a cycle of energy (us) creating worlds of illusion to bring out the emotions in us.
Emotions = Energy

Why would there be a God in the first place? Why?
Who said there has to be a God?
Why would God need this "real" world if he really was God? Why go through all the trouble for us? What's his payback? Remember life is variable, if your happy than somewhere somebody will be sad.
For every cause their must be an effect, we are a cause, what's our effect?

Physical world ? Don't you mean material world, which is a world of illusion.
The two phrases are used more or less interchangeably. Materialism, physicalism and naturalism are roughly synonymous as well:

[1] Materialism - the doctrine that nothing exists except matter and its movements and modifications.

[2] Physicalism - the doctrine that the real world consists simply of the physical world.

[3] Naturalism - the doctrine that scientific laws are adequate to account for all phenomena

I prefer to refer to naturalism and the physical world rather than the material world or materialism for a few reasons:

For one, the physical world comprises more than matter/energy. There is also force, form, space and time, which are all in a sense aspects of matter, but not implied by the word materialism.

Also, the word materialism has been derogated by both by the Christians and Marx (dialectical materialism).

Have you seen the Wedge Document leaked from the Discovery Institute announcing its intention to "defeat scientific materialism and its destructive moral, cultural, and political legacies" and to "reverse the stifling materialist world view and replace it with a science consonant with Christian and theistic convictions"?

These Christians also declaimed, "materialist reformers [who] advocated coercive government programs" which it referred to as "a virulent strain of utopianism."

That sounds like they are conflating philosophical naturalism with Marxism. If their purpose was to demean the word, they have succeeded. Where the Christian have shit, I generally steer clear.

Hope that helps.

well there is one god upon whom we agree

is there other gods you do not believe in?
What is the proof of this one god?

To begin with how is he causally connected with the universe?

How did he create this universe from nothing?

How does he govern the universe in the absence of a causal link between this extra-cosmic deity and the universe?

If this god is spirit then what is spirit in terms of its material and force composition?

Spirit is not mind as someone suggested.

Mind is a grade - the deductive aspect - of the manifested unified field of consciousness-energy.

Ok..... Now you're comparing belief in Jesus to a child believing in Santa.
You're lost.
The only difference between belief in Santa and Jesus is that most adults acknowledge that the former is a lie told only to children.

oh I agree

you build a new god, surely you are correct.

no one has ever thought to build a new god before.
So, how is the basal consciousness and energy created from nothing by your extra-cosmic and creationist god and besides what happens to the basal consciousness-energy field at the end of a cosmic cycle? Does it get dissolved into nothing? How?
