The cover of * Reclaiming Science: The JFK Conspiracy* shows a graph displaying probabilities of unnatural witness deaths assuming 1500, 2000 and 2500 witnesses over a range of 0 to 50 unnatural deaths. Of the 122 suspicious deaths in the

*spreadsheet,78 were ruled unnatural (34 homicides, 24 accidents, 16 suicides, 4 unknown).*

**JFK Calc**The x-coordinate of the peak in each curve is the EXPECTED number of unnatural deaths given the number of JFK-related witnesses.

The graph illustrates the power of SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS to display how a target variable (the probability) changes as input variables change in value. In the * JFK Calc* spreadsheet, the calculation is given by the

**Poisson function****THE PROBABILITY CALCULATION**

Given:

N= 1500 = JFK-related witnesses (the universe)

n= 78 officially ruled unnatural deaths

T= 15 years (1964-78)

R= 0.000822 = average national unnatural mortality rate (unweighted)

We need to calculate E, the expected number of unnatural deaths:

**E= N*R*T = 18.5 = 1500 * 0.000822 * 15**

Now we can calculate P, the probability of 78 unnatural deaths:

**P= POISSON(78, 18.5, false) = 4.15 E-25 (1 in 1 TRILLION TRILLION)**

**UNNATURAL DEATHS**

**The graph shows the probability of**

30 unnatural deaths; 1500 witnesses: 0.0034 (1 in 300)

40 unnatural deaths; 2000 witnesses: 0.0011 (1 in 1000)

50 unnatural deaths; 2500 witnesses: 0.0003 (1 in 3000)

**The probability of 78 unnatural deaths for**

1500 witnesses: 4.15 E-25 (base case: 1 in a trillion trillion)

2000 witnesses: 5.00 E-18 (1 in a 200,000 trillion)

2500 witnesses: 3.92 E-13 (1 in 2 trillion)

Note: The JFK-weighted unnatural rate is 0.000247 (weighted by official cause of death). Using this rate, the probabilities of the unnatural deaths are much lower than the above unweighted probabilities of 1 in trillions. So why bother?

**HOMICIDES**

In 1964-78, there were at least 34 officially ruled JFK-related homicides. A statistical estimation of the expected cause of death indicates that approximately 50 officially ruled accidents, suicides, heart attacks and sudden cancers were likely homicides (at least 80 homicides among the 122 suspicious deaths).

**Given the average 0.000084 homicide rate for 1964-78, the probability of**

34 homicides; 1500 witnesses: 1.4 E-30 (1 in a million trillion trillion)

50 homicides; 2000 witnesses: 3.7 E-46 (1 in a billion trillion trillion trillion)

80 homicides; 3000 witnesses: 6.7 E-75 (1/trillion^6)

80 homicides; 1500 witnesses: 3.7 E-98 (1/trillion^8)

**Triple the average homicide rate to 0.000252.
The probability of**

34 homicides; 1500 witnesses: 5.4 E-16 (1 in 2,000 trillion)

50 homicides; 2000 witnesses: 1.7 E-24 (1 in a trillion trillion)

80 homicides; 3000 witnesses: 5.0 E-40 (1 in a trillion trillion trillion)

80 homicides; 1500 witnesses: 1.3 E-61 (1/trillion^5)
