We know that every set of reals is in some sense countable according to Skolem`s paradox, I mean that there is a bijection between the real and naturals if naturals are outside of model of set theory. Still Cantor`s theorem in set theory, which is of course valid, says that the reals are uncountable. To me it seems that there is a theorem in set theory that can`t be true in sense I understand you see it. You have said before that the axioms of set theory are true. How can you explain this - or am I missing something?
