I ended up here while searching the web for lower level writings on "Non-Cantorian Set Theory." I guess the frequent occurrence of "Anti-Cantorian" led me here. I looked over some of the postS. At first I was amused, but then appalled and concerned. The crankery here can be quite severe, and the Internet is great for spreading misinformation. This site, supposedly, discusses Logic and Math. There are rules that need to followed. I'm a pretty easy going guy, but you just can't fudge logical rules.
Also, I have found the "Defending of the Alephs" a good way to excise my logical skills. Which I surely need, as you can see when I get brain-twisted in somebody's ridiculous fallacious idea.
