Some facts about lightning:
1: "There are some 16 million lightning storms in the world every year."
16 million is a big number. Thats 16 million in just one year, so divide that into 365 and you get 43836 on average a day! so it is entirely feasible
that 2 lightning storms will happen on one day, and with the size of the oil spill being a factor, its not improbable it will be struck.
2: Lightning will take the shortest route to the ground.

This is basic science everyone should know. This statue was the largest one of jesus in the US, so it probably stood quite high. The higher the object
the more likely it is to attract lightning. Try standing in an open field in a storm to see what I mean.
This of course is assuming it actually was hit by lightning.
It amazes me how rather than look to using their brains in figuring out what happened, people here just play the "God did it!" card to spread their
beliefs further, without even considering the possibility that it was either just a freak accident or deliberately caused.
I always thought this site was about denying ignorance, im really not so sure now.
