Only if you think there's an eternal hell.
God could be allowing us the experience of this world so we never want to experience it again.
Sort of like touching a hot stove once makes you respect a stove and hot things the rest of your life.
Besides he told us to go out and tell people. I always had the ability to spot people that were better than me and learn from them so why can't other non-believers do the same: fake it until understanding is achieved and it becomes second nature.
At the same time God needs to keep quality control down here. Just bad enough so we learn not to want to touch the hot stove any more yet not so bad we nuke each other into non-existence. Unlike this world's experience of the ends, God's ends are so out of proportion to the means that his means could be justified.
