You can manipulate the numbers and find co-incidences all you want but nothing changes the fact that you are better off wearing a helmet if you get involved in a crash while cycling. Why would you look for excuses not to wear one?

If anyone used these kind of arguments to lobby against increasing cycling amenities in the city you would be up in arms and rightfully so. E.G. you do not need cycling lanes since cycling is already incredibly safe.

Wearing helmets may cramp your style or be uncomfortable or not look cool or mess your hair but the fact remains they help. Again this sounds an awful lot like the comments I heard years ago when seatbelt use became mandatory. Now it would seem strange not to have seatbelt laws.
