Not at all. However...regarding expert forensic evidence, a panel of sound engineers, acoustical specialists and various other auditory authorities told the HSCA committee that there is a 95% chance that there was a 4th shot from the knoll area.
A whole lot more than 95% of the only one guy believers completely reject those experts.
I am skeptical.

Nothing wrong with being skeptical and just believing everything that is being told. All I'm saying is when solid evidence is presented then I will believe it over a theory that I previously believed to be true. If anybody can prove the photos  were altered with a similar method then I am always open to looking at that evidence.

The "95%" claim was made by Wiess and Ashkenazy, no one else. Two guys.

Quote
The study was supervised by Dr. James E. Barger, the firm's chief scientist. At the time of the reconstruction in August 1978, the committee was extremely conscious of the significance of Barger's preliminary work, realizing, as it did, that his analysis indicated that there possibly were too many shots, spaced too closely together, 5 for Lee Harvey Oswald to have fired all of them, and that one of the shots came from" the grassy knoll, not the Texas School Book Depository. When questioned about the probability of the entire third impulse pattern representing a supersonic bullet being fired at the President from the grassy knoll, Barger estimated there was a 20 percent chance that the N-wave, as opposed to the sequence of impulses following it, was actually caused by random noise.(65) Accordingly, the mathematical probability of the entire sequence of impulses actually representing a supersonic bullet was 76 percent, the product of a 95 percent chance that the impulse pattern represented noise as loud as a rifle shot from the grassy knoll times an 80 percent chance that the N-wave was caused by a supersonic bullet. (66)

The committee found no evidence or indication of any other cause of noise as loud as a rifle shot coming from the grassy knoll at the time the impulse sequence was recorded on the dispatch tape, and therefore concluded that the cause was probably a gunshot fired at the motorcade.

The Backyard pictures do not prove that Oswald killed JFK.
In retrospect...being plastered on the cover of LIFE magazine with the caption 'weapons used to kill Kennedy and Officer Tippit' instilled prejudice in the minds of Americans no matter the questions and no matter the circumstantial evidence.

You have to understand and accept that every single official and unofficial statement from Marina Oswald must be taken with reserve. She was giving statements in Russian which was then translated in English. We can not accept any her statement from 1963/64 for granted and 100% accurate.
If Oswald was framed as LN, than why would we believe that Marina statements translations are accurate?

Maybe it was like this:
Question: Did you take back yard photos?
Marina in Russian: Yes, but not this ones!
Translator: Yes, but not this ones.
Translation in statement: Yes.

Posing with the murder weapons while looking like some type of political loon has that impact.  Another example of arguing that the evidence against Oswald is so overwhelming that it can only mean he is innocent.  LOL.

The problem with the photos is not that they showed a unstable crackpot posing like this - look at this guy! - no the problem is that news magazines ran the photos and poisoned opinion against him.

Suggestion: if you don't want people to think you're an unstable person then don't pose for photos that make you look like an unstable person.

Poor Oswald. Everybody was against him. Steam fitters, waitresses, warehouse workers, cab drivers, secretaries, shoe salesmen, ticket takers, used car salesmen.......No wonder the guy didn't like America - we were all out to get him.

How unusual or unstable is it for someone who lives in Texas to take a picture posing with guns? I would think that sort of thing is normal down there given how rifles and hunting are a big part of their culture.

It only looks incriminating after Oswald is accused of shooting the President. Short of that, there's nothing inherently bad about the backyard photos.

You believe that it was "normal" for people in Texas during the 1960s to have pictures taken of themselves holding guns while displaying Commie literature?  While dressed in all black.

The Commie literature thing is unique for someone from the South (Marxists were extremely rare in the Jim Crow South)but not incriminating.

The only way something like that becomes incriminating relevant is if the person in the photos is accused of a violent crime.
