Adam & Eve Continuity Error

One of the main questions people had, from the beginning was the identity of "Adam & Eve" bones in the cave. Now, i am one to give the benefit of the doubt to the writers, but I don't believe there is any way they can get out of this one. Here is what they said in regards to the skeletons found in the cave, in season 3

What is the meaning or significance of the two skeletons that Jack and Kate found in the cave of season 1?

CUSE: The answer to that question goes to the nature of the timeline of the island. We don't want to say too much about it, but there are a couple Easter eggs embedded in [the Feb. 7 episode], one of which is an anagram that actually sheds some light on the skeletons and hints at a larger mythological mystery that will start to unfold later in the season.

LINDELOF: There were certain things we knew from the very beginning. Independent of ever knowing when the end was going to be, we knew what it was going to be, and we wanted to start setting it up as early as season 1, or else people would think that we were making it up as we were going along. So the skeletons are the living — or, I guess, slowly decomposing — proof of that. When all is said and done, people are going to point to the skeletons and say, ''That is proof that from the very beginning, they always knew that they were going to do this.''

The episode that is being discussed is "Not in Portland." In this episode, Carl is rescued from Room 23. The secret easter egg, is something that can only be heard backwards. You can watch it here.  

Only fools are enslaved by time and space. 

an anagram that can be understood for: 

Bones of Nadlers may lady deep in lost cave

The Nadlers are of course, Rose and Bernard. So what gives? The black and white stones found in one of the skeletons DO fit nicely with them being MIB and mother, but you still have to contend with what the producers hinted to us back in season 3. Also, if it was Rose and Bernard, it would nicely explain what happened to them after they got stuck in the 1970's. 

I would be interested to find out when they decided to change this. Damn them.
