The Cantor diagonal arggument for real numbers does not need all the
digits of any real number, only finitely many decimal (or other base)
places for any number.

Why WM finds it so difficult to speak the truth about the Cantor

Perhaps it is because his fanatic religious zeal to promulgate his many
false dogmas has undercut both his ethics and his morality.
