Lets say that I reject God and choose to spend an eternity in hell. He knew I would make this choice, and yet he still made me.
If he loved me so much, why would he make me knowing that I would spend an eternity away from him?
Articles on omniscience, predestination, or this exact topic would be loverly.
I will propose (but do not support) three heretical answers to your question:
1) How are you sure anyone spends eternity in Hell. Origen, and many others, have argued that eventually everything (even the Devil) will be reconciled to God, since God will to save all creation, and His will is omnipotent. A modern philosopher, Camus, argues that in the pains of death, every person will atone for any sin they may have committed. Does the Bible say anyone will spend eternity in Hell. It says hell is "eternal fire" a few times, but does it actually say anyone spends eternity there?? The idea of universal salvation lead to Origen being declared a heretic.
2) How are you sure that the "Creator" of "this world" is in fact the loving God, the God of Jesus? If the Garden of Eden was ontologically different from our present existence, it follows that we came into our present existence as the product of sin. In this sense our life/existence in this world, is the creation of the Evil One. In support of this, you could quote John's Gospel, which calls the Devil the "Lord of this World", as well as Jesus instruction to "hate our lives in this world". This would not make much sense if God was the creator of "this" world. This is the heresy of the Cathars.
3) Sin, the possibility of damnation, came into the world contrary to God's will, as a consequent of the serpent. How do you know that God created the serpent? Why would a good God create a evil being? Perhaps the Devil (the evil deity- the Lord of this World) existed also eternally, so there is a genuine struggle between good and evil forces (hence Jesus' exorcisms in which he struggles with evil spirits)? This is the heresy of the Manichees.
A more orthodox answer is that hell, evil, sin, dmanation are NOT part of God's creation or plan, because, in fact, they are really non-existent things. All creation is good, as it is from God, but evil is in fact an absence or negation of creation/order. This is St. Augustine's answer.
