Claiming that adam's offspring was eve is totally without basis.
The scriptures, which is the only source of information regarding
adam and eve (assuming as I do that they were literal people) gives
absolutely no indication to that end. It clearly states that both
were created by God, only God used adams rib to form eve miraculously.
