But as far as any valid arguments are concerned, it appears AT LEAST equally likely that the various objections are the things that are wrong. > > > So Cantor's diagonal is applicable to potential infinity context! > > Cantor's arguments are *only* applied to potentially infinite sets, in fact > in standard set theory there is no such thing as actual infinity at all.
ZFC offers a standard set theory in which actually infinite sets are not only allowed but actually required to exist, and no one yet has been able to show that ZFC is not a perfectly sound set theory. > > Please get your head out of your ass and read and try to understand what you > are rebutting before you actually get to do it.
AS far as headinassitis, LV appears to have a far worse case of it than those he is criticizing.
