That from WM is a laugh, as WM neither behaves nor writes at all like
civilized person.

Then, equally, no infinite sequence can have a limit.

The rationals and the naturals are well known to be bijectable, which
everywhere outside of the wild weird world of WMytheology translates to
equinmerous.

WM is claiming that the union of an increasing sequence of sets will
have any property common to all those sets, and thus, since an
increasing set of ordered but finite, thus well-ordered, sets of
rationals will union to the set of all rationals, the set of all
rationals in natural order must be well-ordered.

But according to that same argument, WM is claiming that because all
those sets of rationals are finite that their union, the set of all
rationals must also be finite.

So we can easily see that WM's main thesis, the assumption that a limit
must have all the properties common to all the members of the sequence
of which it is the limit, only holds in the the wild weird world of
WMytheology.

Outside of the wild, weird world of WMytheology,
(1) infinite sequences are actually infinite as sets,
(2) infinite sets are actually infinite,
(3) an infinite union of finite sets need not be finite,
(4) an infinite union of well-ordered sets need not be well-ordered,
(5) an infinite union of FISONs need not be a FISON,
and WM just does not understand how proper math works.
