I see that you have stopped responding to my arguments, and have employed the rather lame tactic of suggesting I look at definitions on the web.
In the mean time, how about answering two questions for me:
1. Do you believe it is possible to create a list of all computable Reals? 2. Do you believe the computable Reals are countable?
That at least will tell me what your problem is with my argument.
