You claim to have done so, but have not yet shown us a single one of
your paths, and to validate your claim, you must show us a listing of
all of them so that we may see that they are countable.

But you dare not do that because any allegedly complete listing of your
allegedly complete set of paths will show its own incompleteness.

Until you actually list them, any such claim is unsupported by any
evidence, which is WM's usual method: Makeing all sorts of irrelevant
claims (which WM does not even then prove), to throw dust in everyone's
eyes.

In every Complete Infinite Binary Tree, every finite path ends at the
root node of of another Complete Infinite Binary Tree. So for every
finite path, there are uncountably many extensions of it in every
Complete Infinite Binary Tree.

Since there are of necessity uncountably many infinite tails to every
finite head, one still has uncountability, at least outside
Wolkenmuekenheim.

Not that WM again refuses to provide any evidence of the alleged but
false 'completeness' of his set of paths, or even of its conforming to
any definition of countability.

WMytheology at its worst!
