Yep. That concept goes against what the Bible says:
Ecclesiastes 9:5 - "The living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing."
It's the reason why Job begged to go to hell when he was enduring such terrible atrocities in his life. He said at Job 14:13 "Protect me in hell." Why would he want to go there if all that was there was eternal torture? Sounds worse than the situation he found himself in.
In fact, Jesus went to hell (Acts 2:31).
Finally, all of this contradicts John 4:8 which tells us that "God is love." A loving God would not create a place where torture would go on forever.
