His proof is nonsense because it proves that a countable set, namely the set of all reals of a Cantor-list and all diagonal numbers to be constructed from it by a given rule an to be added to this list, cannot be listed, hence, that this indisputably countable set is uncountable.
Even completely blinded matheologicians should be able, perhaps after some contemplation, to recognize that.
