Since I don't ride motorcycles I will not dispute your opinion.
Would that also apply to football and hockey?
There is a good argument against helmets in football since with helmets the players tend to use the helmet in tackles and we have seen a greater and greater closed head injury rates with Helmets than we saw back in the day when only thin lightly padded leather was used... The extra mass can cause greater forward momentum and when the head hit's the brain is still in motion,,, The argument is that without helmets the players would not lead with their heads therefore preventing cervical damage and closed head injuries

Hockey on the other hand uses the helmets and face guard to protect against Puck impacts and stick slices.. And like Hard Hats for construction protecting from objects in motion Hockey protection from flying objects and sticks makes sense...

America's values are not that of your superstition.
No ,,,, We have different opinions on Just Punishment.
Those who worshipped the calf had been instructed not to do so and were given the reasons why they should not do so. It would be detrimental to the wellbeing of the entire congregation ,as you well know

They knew full well there would be cosecuences as you well know
Not only that , They were given the opportunity to correct the error of their ways , which they refused as you well know.
They had no one to blame for their fate but themselves as you well know

No ,never had a gang sign
At my age , I would not belong to a gang.
But , were I to start one , I would name it "The Disciples" and our sign would be an Unbeliever , kneeling, in deep prayer asking Christ to come into his life.

And you sir are a liar. Here's the actual talk given on the year 1975. You can't claim it's bias because it's one of your own telling the lies.

It is nothing of the sort! It claims to be a talk given at a circuit Assembly---If it was true it would give the location of said Circuit Assembly the date etc.
Like I said I have been reading the Watchtower and Awake magazines since 1964 and somehow that escaped my attention! I think it is very interesting that almost 8 million Jehovah's Witnesses worldwide have been mislead while a brilliant individual like you was able to see the fallacy of the Watchtower. Where did you acquire such wisdom? Indeed!

Evidently your god can be identified at 2 Corinthians 4:4. You are unaware of the god of this world. SAD! SAD! SAD!

If you want to learn what the average Jehovah's Witnesses believes, you donít read the Bible, you read the Watchtower Magazine. This is because the Watchtower is the source of their theological beliefs, not the Bible.

Thank you for proving my point when I posted this months and months ago!

Man, the information is right there under your finger tips. All you have to do is Google it. I know you're not allowed to read anything the JWs don't approve but listen to my link and then look it up yourself. There's a reason why they try and keep you in the dark.

If you claim to be a card carrying JW back in 75 and the surrounding years then once again you are a liar. They did claim this just as sure as they claimed 1914.

Perhaps he/she exercised their personal right to individually think on their own! You can find a wealth of information if you are willing and open to the possibilities available.
Do you remember those times when you would make decisions on you own, think for yourself, and determine what is right and/or wrong w/out someone telling you.
....... In reference to Moses and the Israelites ....
Even other Christians admit Moses took the law into his own hands, and abused his Authority. In today's standards that would be considered Vigilante Justice and carries a stiff punishment.

Killing a homeless person means only "a bit more" than stepping on an ant?
You are sick.
And killing a cop is "much more" than killing a homeless person?
Why? Because a cop is providing a service to society and the homeless person is not?
Well, then why is abortion wrong? A fetus is providing no service either.
Sure, someday it might. But then again, so might that homeless person.
You can't have it both ways.

Well it's true.... The Overall voting records of the Major Cities such as Detroit, Chicago, LA, NY, Atlanta ect. show Democrat Massive Majority.... and a few voted so with 100% to 115% of the registered voting numbers... Now aline that with the FBI Stat's on the US Prison Populations and where the crimes happen about 90% of US Violent Crimes take place in Cities over 200,000 people... With a large number of Gangs, both Hispanic and Black, making up a large segment of that... Knowing the Demographics of such groups the Vast Majority support and agree with Liberal political policies...
So I stand by the Rational observation that Prisons are Overwhelmingly Democrats and Liberals... I think 90% sounds about right for the populations...

Now the Golden Calf for Christians is adopted from the Pagan God Tammuz symbol "see: Ezekial 8:14 " the crucifix. Christians pledge allegiance to the flag under "Satan the God of this world" showing that they are still worshipping symbols just like the ones that Moses murdered.
YAA,curious would have been murdered by Moses for their pagan worship.
Ding Dong.... your brain calling!
We do not worship the flag, or the Cross...
We ONLY Worship God...
The Cross is only a symbol of His Love for US, and to get up your nose!

I don't wear a helmet because I understand physics, DOT and Snell ratings and the stat's from my last ome state of Michigan that had a helmet law for many years and then changed the law to No Helmet...
a 2 lb helmet has a very heavy Inertial mass at 60mph.. While the impact rating under DOT and Snell of about 25mph... The Inertial mass causes the head to be forced into an impact that may have not occurred without the added mass... It also causes a greater rate of spinal damage... In Michigan the Death Rate due to head injury did rise by about 2% after they passed the No Helmet laws but the number of Paralysis due to spinal cord damage Dropped by 28%...
Then there is the issue with helmets limiting vision and hearing potential crash situations until the last moment ... In all states that have dropped mandatory helmet laws and seen a reduction of crashes in the first place...
A friend of my dad's, another "Goldwing" rider... turned left from the outside lane making a U turn... a car clipped his back wheel, knocking the bike over, he bumped his head, walked away from the accident...
Died later from bleeding in his head... No Helmet!
Busey... No Helmet, and look at him now...
Helmet or no... No man knows the time of his recall!
