Then how is it, if a human birth is so rare, that it was given to people who are not going to even come close to studying the dhamma, who are extremely harmful to others? And what good does it do to give someone a lower birth, such as that of an animal or an insect, when they cannot learn anything from it?
To me, it would be better if those who are already on the path could continue along that path in their next life as a human, even if they didn't understand the 4 Noble Truths completely. Otherwise they have obtained no benefit.
