All I said was that it is longer than any finite line.
If you claim otherwise you are claiming it to be no longer than some finite line, which makes it also a finite line.

If it is not longer than some finite line of one's choice, then, since it is already a line, it is a finite line.

And d must be longer than any n one chooses, or that one CAN choose, as otherwise it is finite. --
