Then there are no finite sets past a certain size either -- by your own argument! As follows...

(1) An argument must rest in a finite number of statements. (You set yourself up for that one!)

(2) Any argument that successfully draws the conclusion that infinite sets are inconsistent must therefore employ only a finite number of numbers.

(3) From this argument also follows the inconsistency of the concept of number, itself, that go beyond the largest number used in that argument.

(4) Therefore, finite sets also don't exist -- past a certain point.
