It says that an infinite set exists.

Your problem is that you are using

If a collection of lines C cannot be removed

then there is a line in C that cannot be removed.

However, this is only true for finite collections. For an

infinite collection

There is an infinite collection of lines, D, that

cannot be removed, however, any single line of D

can be removed.

You do not like this property of infinite collections

but it is not a contradiction.
