    You would think that an omnipotent, omniscient being such as God is claimed to be could come up with a better punishment than eternal torture and hellfire.  A punishment that would rehabilitate sinners rather than condemning them.  Surely an all-powerful God, such as is described in the Bible, would be able to teach a sinner a lesson and rehabilitate him rather than just condemning him to eternal torment.  The only reason I can see why such a God would not rehabilitate sinners rather than sending them to hell is that God doesn’t want to, which seems rather cruel to me.
    And no Jesus doesn’t count as the rehabilitation as when Jesus supposedly saves a person that person must be alive.  I am talking about after death when a sinner is condemned to hell.  Couldn’t God come up with a better punishment than that?

Why should god punish anyone at all, if he really is omniscient?

For that matter, why should PEOPLE punish one another?  Most of the time, it just makes things worse. :(

Kind of ironic that humans came up with something that their supposed 'creator' didn't...

Most christians of today flat out reject a literal fire-and-brimstone hell, mainly because most christians aren't inhumane bastards who want to watch other people suffer for believing differently. 

That said, the christian belief system is inconsistent in many ways, and having a cruel and petty god portrayed as kind and merciful is just one.
