|The divine comedy|
B.H. Shadduck (1869–1950) was an American 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...) (Wait, toil is a sin??) 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.
