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

The soul has a chance to save itself, but it won't.  That doesn't mean its existence is worthless.  Maybe the damned soul will have an offspring down the road that cures cancer, or better yet, becomes a saint.

A person who themselves will become a saint could also have offspring that cures cancer or becomes a saint. There is no need to have an intermediary soul in Hell just to be the progenitor of a saint.

And there is no need to have a saint to be the progenitor...

I was giving an example of how the damned soul's existence isn't worthless just because he is damned at the end of his mortal life, but one can think of others.

God creates the soul but with our involvement.  Human free will is involved in the creation of a new soul, and for God to prevent that would be interfering with our free will.  That's why he allows babies to be conceived who are later murdered in utero by their mothers.
