There are at least as many non-algebraic irrationals as alegbraic ones
which counting only the algebraic ones will miss.

For example, for each rational q, both e*q and pi*q are irrational

Well you at least implied that being able to count the rationals, even
though you also have frequenty denied that any such counting is possible
within Wolkenmuekenheim, also implies countability of the irrationals.

So any straw men here are purely of WM's creation.
