Chess Problems

This problem took me at least 90 seconds to solve.  Initially, I was looking at all the wrong ideas.  It took me so long it that chess.com only gave me one rating point for solving it.

I didn't like the White response after the first move, because I thought it was dumb.  It is the choice that delays mate the longest.  I had a different White defense in mind, so I went into the analysis option and it turns out my defense (2. f4) allows mate in 1, which I didn't see.

​P.S.  Check ​out this article.  I am not convinced that there is a solution.   http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2017/03/14/can-solve-chess-problem-holds-key-human-consciousness/
