That's like saying

"I made this birdhouse myself"

cannot mean:

"I used tools to make this birdhouse"

No it's...really not. We aren't talking about a "tool" here...what you are talking about another entity, another god, another presence that contributed to the formation of the world. "Alone" and "By myself" denote that there was no other god that did...anything...and possibly weren't even present period.

Someone using a hammer and saying they built a birdhouse by themselves is correct.

Someone having another person use the hammer and then saying they built it themselves because they "told the other person what to do" or "used that person to do this job" is not correct.

No I'm not. Seriously, see someone about that comprehension problem.

Jesus = the hammer, nails, wood, etc.
God = The person who built the treehouse out of wood, using the hammer and nails.
