245. It is...
Edited on Sun Jun-14-09 03:58 AM by armyowalgreens
the assumption that when a bullet hits the head of someone, the tissue and bone that is removed will always fly in the direction that the bullet is traveling. So if the bullet makes contact with the head as it is travelling north, the matter will only spray out in a northerly direction.

The argument in the OP is that because matter traveled in one direction, that means the bullet must have come from the opposite direction. Which simply isn't sound physics at all.

When a bullet hits an apple, the apple basically explodes in all directions. The violent pressure of the bullet causes that. The same thing happens when a bullet enters an object, including a human head. The pressure of the bullet entering the head would cause tissue and bone to literally explode out in more than one direction.

Also, the assumption that Conally was seated directly in front of Kennedy is incorrect. He was seated to the left. Which means that the bullet did not need to defy physics and take a right turn. That means that the single bullet theory works.
