If hell is a place for humans, why did God say we go back to the dust when we die not that we go to hell forever?

He never said that adam and eve would go to hell when they die

    Hell was never created for humans.  It was made for the Devil and his angels.  The reason God said we go back to dust is that our BODY goes back to dust when it rots in the grave, and of course, if we are Christ's at His coming, our BODIES will be resurrected from the grave;  but when we die, our SPIRIT leaves our body and returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7).  We are spirits INSIDE - we are made in God's image.  God is Spirit,(God the Father)  John 4:24) - He is also Soul (Holy Spirit)  and body Jesus Christ.  In Jesus Christ dwells all three - all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. (Colossians 2:9)

    Well, we humans are three-part beings in His image.  We are a soul that has a spirit and lives in a body.   When the body dies - it rots and goes back to the dust.  Our spirit leaves at death.

    Correct, insofar as God did not say A&E would go to hell. He said their physical bodies would return to their constituent elements ('dust') when they died physically. Hell is not merely the grave (as those who don't know the Hebrew word for grave is qe'ver think.) Ecclesiastes 12 states that, at death, "the spirit returns to God who gave it." For judgment. But Jesus warned of two men who died, one finding himself in torments in hell, while Lazarus found himself in bliss in 'the bosom of Abraham'. There they awaited the Day of Resurrection and Judgment. They would then be given bodies to 'clothe' their spirits with, to stand for judgment and whatever eternal state they would go to.

    Hell is not so much a place as a condition. It is immaterial, not physical. Genesis only speaks of physical death for A&E but give the promise that through the physical line of descent from the woman, One would come who would crush the serpent in the head. This gives reason to think that A&E would be forgiven for their sin and although "the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23) and they died physically, that 'seed' (Jesus Christ) is called "the second Adam", who would restore all that they lost. Including their souls, methinks.

    The Bible is speaking of dust, to give an example, it is what our bodies will do once we no longer resided within them. Our soul will sleep until Jesus's returns. But time is different outside earth. Our spirit is are already With Jesus for we have everlasting life. We live for eternity.

    Now Hell is a place where darkness gathers. It is a place where the fallen angle travels.  There is fire and brimstone. There is a lake of fire. There is a place that the devil will be. He will be imprisoned. 

    Adam and Eve went to a place called Abrahams bosom (you can find Abrahams bosom in Luke 16:22) It is the place next to Hell. They are no longer there for Jesus saved them.

    Hell was created for Satan and his hoards, not for humans. But many people enjoy the company of that dark, evil angel known as Satan. They will find themselves in hell with him. Stop listening to Youtube wannabe experts. Read a Bible, and hear God's Word.

    Are bodies turn to dust.  Our heavenly bodies are different.

    "Dust" obviously refers to our physical bodies, which decompose after we die. We leave our body behind, and go to the eternal existence we have freely chosen during our time on Earth - Heaven or Hell.
