Why would God create a soul he knows will go to Hell?

Return to non-existence” is a nonsensical expression.  A return to some non-existent state denotes some kind of existence in said non-existent state, which is doubletalk.  Perhaps you mean, why couldn’t God just annihilate the damned. 

If God annihilated the damned, the damned would still exist in the memory of all their victims.  This would be unfair and a violation of justice for the victims.

Sure it’s unjust to be forced to play a game by the rules if one doesn’t want to play the game.  But that injustice presupposes knowledge of the game and the unborn have no knowledge of the game they are being born into.  Ergo, the unborn are not free to make the choice of playing the heaven-hell game. 

You musn’t blame God for metaphysical facts of the matter.  Even He cannot help some things. – Albert Cipriani
