"why would you then fault one for using the book to solve a problem related to the book"
Because the way fact is established in science, and this at least pretends to be a science web site, is to point to completely independent evidence that supports the conclusion.
We don't say the universe is billions of years old just because of radiological dating of samples from earth. We say it due to red shifting. We say it due to parallax measurements of other galaxies. We say it due to many factors from completely independent disciplines. And all of which are as believable to a Christian as to a Jew, a Moslem, a Hindu, a Jane, a practioner of Shinto, an agnostic, and an atheist.
Your supporting information is purely circular. And is only believable to someone whose belief system is identical with yours. In short ... it is almost evidence of a lack of evidence.
