No one has denied it as far as I know.
IN the von Nuenann naturals one can go even farther as=]and say that every natural IS a FISON, so the infinite set of naturals and the nifinite set of FISONs in identical.

On can as soon as one recognizes that one can have a set with the properties of a set of all naturals (an inductive set), which, in ZF for example, must occur before one can even define what a natural is.
I have yet to see an axioim suystem for any set theory that is of any value to mathematics in general that does not start by validating the existence of an inductive infinite set. --
