You have to understand that Roger believes in a creation story of his own - the recent creation of creationism. The story goes that big, bad, stupid America unleashed these ideas on to the world relatively recently, and is therefore mainly responsible for any anti-evolutionary sentiments that you find in the world. It also turns the US into a pinata, and conveniently gives those so inclined another reason to engage in cathartic US bashing.

Everything that you have presented contradicts his dogma that aggressive creationism originated in the US, so expect to hear things like "Hitler didn't know what he was saying" when you show unambiguous evidence that Hitler was as much a creationist as Ken Ham.
