Without labels/names, one cannot speak about anything, so WM's science is as corrupt and inept as his mathematics.

The results of the Urn gedankenexperiment do not depend on labels, only on the individuality and uniqueness of the things labeled.

When every ball inserted into the is finally removed from the urn, the urn is certainly empty.

Except that some of the balls inserted into the urn are not later removed from the urn. That is a substantial enough difference to change the final result from empty to not empty.
If everything put into an initially empty urn is later removed, the urn ends up empty.
If NOT everything put into an initially empty urn is later removed, the urn ends up NOT empty.
At least everywhere outside of WM's wild weird world of WMytheology . --
