So he first found its correctness obvious, and then he created it? You are even too stupid to well-order a simple sequence of events. Children of kindergarten age are expected, and usually able, to do this.

And you believe that you can say anything about well-ordering an infinite set on the basis of your inability to well-order a two-element set? Your crap reaches hitherto unknown levels of stupidity every day.
