I have heard this stated before, but in the case of lightning, I don't
understand the reason why. I do understand in the case of AC mains
safety grounding, but not for lightning.

It would seem to me that a strike should be sent to earth as close to
the point of the strike as possible, rather than routed off many feet
to an SPG. Could you please explain?

Thank you,
