Why are Catholics so against Scripture only ?

Show me one baby baptized in the Bible
Show me the assumption of Mary in the Bible
Show me Purgatory (the place mentioned not assumption) in the Bible
Show me the office of the priest in the Bible
Show me the sprinkling or pouring method of baptism in the Bible

I am not talking about “assuming” interpretations but Scripture that is with out a doubt.
