not really, although the question itself leaves much to be desired.Why would God let me die in the womb after going through the whole cycle and having one more chance to please Him. Hard to get a answer to that one.
I will answer from my own perspective, as to what my own understanding is, as that is all I have
Firstly god does not let anything happen, we have divine rules, like gravity which dictate what happens rather than some old beardy watching a mock up of the world on TV with a giant remote control, shouting out 'ok your toast' or 'hey your a great person, have a Mercedes Benz'. Whatever happens, happens because of either consonance or disconsonance, smoke heavily, get lung disease, drive fast, have more accidents, have lots of sex, get STD's.
as for one more chance to please him, well, this is just too Abrahamic for me, so by your reckoning, we are all on this earth to please him, because his ego is so huge, he demands respect and bowing and scraping, and we please him by growing our hair, sticking fingers in our ears and mumbling, or by paying people to read his word for days on end, so we can all feel good about ourselves, or by washing flags in milk, I could go on.....
finding consonance just isnt good enough for some people, those that sit in the lap of god, do not even know about it, its just normal for them, no drama, no ceremony, no ritual, no rubbish, simplicity in itself
