|The divine comedy|
B.H. Shadduck (1869–1950) was the author of a bunch of really weird creationist booklets. He was born the first time in Pennsylvania and after a born again experience at the age of 18 joined the Salvation Army. He later became a Methodist minister in West Virginia.
He is best known for his creationist booklets, which are really whacked. One of them is his best seller, Jocko-Homo Heavenbound, published in 1924, the year before the Scopes trial. Jocko-Homo Heavenbound is filled with illustrations such as a devil pointing to a list of sins which belief in evolution supposedly leads to (world war, tax, usury, toil, suicide, orgies, cockfighting, white slavery, alcohol...) It is also filled with references which any Devo fan will find instantly familiar, not only in the title but also the word "D-Evolution" and a reference to our ancestors losing their tails. It also makes the reader aware of a conspiracy to suppress his work by some publications banning advertising of it.

- A creationist website promoting his work - shouldn't they rather be embarrassed about this kind of stuff instead?
