Matheology § 175

>There are only countably many names.


Wrong. a name is simply a set of letters of any number.


>Conclusion: Infinities do not come come in different sizes.

wrong.


>In fact
>mathematicians have never had use for actual infinity because they

wrong.

>All they could is to believe that they had use for actual
>infinity, i. e., for numbers that have no names and cannot be used.


wrong.

>That's called mathelogy.

wrong, you theory is called the deceiver.
