Do you believe in “Adam and Eve story? Like Beginning of the Bible says it happened? ?

It's an alleghory like everything else in the bible.
Adam and Eve represent the Father and Mother, the Alpha and Omega.
You see this everywhere: Yin and Yang,
Hot and Cold, Rich and Poor, Father-Sky and Mother-Earth etc.

Yep. With some caveats, however.
One, creation is not ex nihilo. Nothing in the Bible supports that notion.
Two, the "days" of creation would have been better translated as indefinite "times." They certainly weren't 24-hour days, much less consecutive ones.
Three, Genesis 1 is told from the point of view of an observer on the Earth's surface. As the atmosphere gradually cleared, first light, then the sun, then the moon, and finally the stars became visible.

According to Titus 1:2 it shows that God cannot lie so we can believe every word that is written in the Bible since he inspired it according to 2 Timothy 3:16, 17.

Jesus is the New Adam and the Virgin Mary is the New Eve. It is good to honor them both by reciting the rosary every day with care and sincerity.

I believe the truth the story is meant to convey - that God brought into existence all that exists. Period. Obviously the story is not meant to be taken word for word literally.

Absolutely, God took the dust of the earth and created Adam, then using a rib from Adam created Eve. Jehovah God created the universe in all its complexities including all life.

What can first, the chicken or the egg? The Adam or the Eve? At some point you need an Adam or an Eve...

Well since Adam and Eve could not write, at the time, no. Its kind of like a movie or a long book. If it was a biography then you might have something, but it is not a biography.

Except for creationists, most Christians don't take every aspect that story as literal. The history of life just doesn't line up with it.
