All of WMytheology is unfinished, so WM really needs to find an answer to his question. > > > > You know this but are just playing games.

So that in WMytheology only very special rationals can have decimal representations at all and no irrationals have any.

Note that, as stated, WM's claim allows Cantor to be right regardless.
So that WM is, for once, correct, even if only unintentionally.
