Why should I like to have something which does not exist?
If WM wants to claim such a list exists, then HE is reqponsible for
proving it, and the only valid proof is to present us with it, or at
lest some unambiguous rule for generating it. Neither of which has WM
don or can WM do.

WM must first prove that a "list of all Cantor lists" is possible before
using it to prove something else.
And how does one "append" things to a list (the list of all
Cantor-lists that are possible) that appears to have no end?
Since we already know that a list of all binary sequences is NOT
possible, no one but WM is willing to accept that such a list as he
requires can exist without proof that it does exist.

The only thing one needs to prove WM wrong is the proof that every
listing of binary sequences is provably incomplete.

Every |N includes all the "steps" to infinity, at least outside of
WMYTHEOLOGY, so this claim is false

When WM actually produces such a list explicitly, it will only then be
believable, but he can't because there is on such list.
At least none outside his WMytheological Dreamland.

Since it does not even exist, one may claim anything and everything
about it. Including that even though it cannot be "diagoalized" it can

Most of them only outside WMytheology.
