I thought that the only people who doubted evolution were fundies from Alabama?

Obviously mere geographical location doesn't prevent fundies from being wrong about evolution, otherwise you could cure 'em of it with a plane ticket.
The official caricature of creationists is that it only exists in a small minority of fundies in the South and that it doesnt exist anywhere else in the world. Even though two of the biggest creation organisations, CMI and Answers in Genesis were started in Australia not USA.

So how do you explain two of the main creation organisations Creation Ministries and Answers in Genesis being made in Australia not USA.

It is very doubtful that Australian creationism could have evolved convergently in response to an environment and legal pressures that simply do not exist. Hence the evidence points to Australian creationism having been imported and transplanted from a foreign land, namely the USA.
Also Ken Ham is to blame for moving to America and bringing Answers in Genesis with him.

I understand. Creation was imported from USA. Dont be so uptight.

To blame for what? While it is possible that he could have helped in importing USA-style "creation science" into Australia.
I just meant that Ken Ham helped popularize creation in America, with Answers in Genesis.

I didnt say that Ken Ham created creationism, just that two of the worlds main creation orgs were founded in Australia. I agree that modern creation started with Henry Morris and John Whitcomb.
