Yes. Humans in Middle Earth are mostly shit; pretty much all of them worship Melkor, because as I mentioned the Valar have to be reminded that they even exist. The few who took part in the fight against Melkor in the first age were given an island in the middle of the ocean and were empowered to be 8 feet tall, live for hundreds of years, and be great at everything compared to other men. However, they banned them from ever setting foot on Aman, because the Valar really do not like humans.
At first, Numenor was great. Its people explored all over Middle Earth, coming as patrons and emissaries. Later, however, the Numenorians started getting upset about the Elves and Valar very obviously treating them like their pets, and things started going downhill. They straight up conquored parts of Middle Earth, and while Elves used to come from Aman to visit, they were at first hated and later shot on sight. When Sauron started making trouble in Middle Earth, the King of Numenor at the time, Ar-Pharazon, pulled together an army and marched on Mordor. Sauron surrendered immediately.
They took him prisoner, but Sauron being Sauron tricked Ar-Pharazon into worshipping Melkor, feeding into his hatred of the Valar. Sauron eventually became Numenor's high priest, and encouraged the degration of Numenor, spreading Melkor worship, and sacrificing any elf-sympathizers on the island.
Eventually Ar-Pharazon decided to attack Aman, which Sauron immediately knew was going to end horribly. He converted his temple into a bunker, locked it down, sat back in his favorite chair, and sipped a drink while he waited for the Valar to end the idiot king.
