Nonsense, that is YOUR misinterpretation of Cantor's arguments. This is obviously FALSE, and Cantor never said something like that or anything that can lead to such ridiculous result.

Of course, because the list is defined as the list of ALL terminating decimal representations. That is correct and natural and Cantor's arguments Agrees with that completely.

Oh really, I'm amazed, are you serious? of course the diagonal is NOT an entry of the list, this is a silly remark on your behalf, the list ONLY contains TERMINATING decimal representations, while the diagonal and the anti-diagonal are non terminating decimal representations so of course they are not on the list, ARE you thinking well?

Where is the contradiction? Everyone knows the TRIVIALITIES you are speaking about, of course the diagonal and the anti-diagonal cannot be different (at a finite position) from all entries of the list, because the list is of ALL finite initial segments of reals, Cantor agrees to that, and every result based on Cantor's argument is consistent with that. The contradiction only lies in YOUR head, you thought that Cantor is saying something against that, which neither he nor anyone who is sane have objected to that or have presented any line of reasoning that contradicts that. You are just fighting your own misinterpretations of Cantor, and blaming Cantor for your own misinterpretations. WAKE UP! > > Regards, WM
