I think the following: For all natural numbers I have shown that uncounted rationals remain. Therefore all natural numbers cannot count all rational numbers. It is your right to think otherwise. But matheological belief will not change any mathematical facts. In particular in mathematics, a sequence, increasing above every finite bound, has not limit zero. It is your right to think otherwise.
