 Rib / Side

In a discusion I was having last night someone said that the rib / side of Adam was actually his womb, does anyone have any light to shed on this?

 Re: Rib / Side

Hi Nasher
the word for rib in the creation account.

Strongs number 06763 elu tsela‘ tsay-law’ or (fem.) helu tsal‘ah tsal-aw’

from 06760; TWOT-1924a; n f

AV-side 19, chamber 11, boards 2, corners 2, rib 2, another 1, beams 1, halting 1, leaves 1, planks 1; 41

1) side, rib, beam
1a) rib (of man)
1b) rib (of hill, ridge, etc)
1c) side-chambers or cells (of temple structure)
1d) rib, plank, board (of cedar or fir)
1e) leaves (of door)
1f) side (of ark)

One of the most helpful uses is of the 'sides' for the wooden frame of the Tabernacle. I'm pretty sure the word 'rib' is the best word.
