costing less lives than lightning strikes.

Well that's a pretty obvious lie. In the US lightning kills 40-50 people/year. So the Orlando alone attack matches that, then tack on San Bernardino from 8 months ago and you've exceeded the lightning death rate for the US. Hell if you roll 9/11 into your estimate, that adds another ~190 deaths/year since the event (just averaging the death count out over 16 years). So you are much more likely to die from terrorism, specifically Islamic terrorism, than lightning.

Now take France with 1/5 the population, so assuming lightning strikes are considered random (insurance companies tend to think so anyway), that's 8-10 people per year. And with this latest attack, > 200 French lives have been claimed by terror this year alone. So you're at least 2000% more likely to die from terror than from lightning in France.

Also lightning is an act of nature that is nigh impossible to control. You can control immigration if you have the mind to.

So basically, I have a better chance of being killed by a terrorist than winning the lottery. Well that blows.

To be fair, you have a better chance of dying from a lot of things than winning it big in the lottery. Dog attack, lightning... with odds around 1 in 185,000,000 for the lottery, effectively your odds of dying without having won the lottery (jackpot here, not like a free ticket or $5) are fairly strong.

It's not like your odds of winning the lottery were better than being struck by lightning but worse than being killed by a terrorist.

Well yes, fine, lightning has been around since before mankind, and killing men since there's been men to be killed, and Islamic terrorism a relatively recent phenomenon. So over all time for all people, lightning wins, you got me.

But recently, especially since these new immigration policies and the influx of "refugees," Islamic terror has become a threat that you can deny away all you want. Enough people are dying and leaving surviving family members behind that your false, misleading rhetoric won't stand.

Don't bother doing the US; I've already shown you that the 9/11 attacks alone put the average well above your lightning myth. So unless you can prove terror attacks are bringing people back from the dead, I wouldn't bother.

Don't worry, attacks will keep increasing as demographics keep changing.

Until Muslims are removed, of course.
