How about the premise that there is a set with a first element and for
each element a successor element and which is a subset of any other set
with those properties?

Or a set of sets which contains {}, and for each of its members, m, also
contains m\/{m} and is minimal with respect to those properties?

They are premises that are far more widely accepted than any of the ones
corrupting WM's wild weird world of WMytheology.
