Then WM has dumped proofs by induction right out the window.

There can be no such thing as potential infinity until WM or someone

else can produce an axiom system for it that at least does not contain

any of the obvious flaws that WM's version of it has.

We do nt have to do any such thing. If WM choses to, since it only holds

in his WMytheology and not elsewhere, no one need conform to WM's

private insanity.

Then it is no more actual than inaccessible real numbers.

Nope, all you have to find is a d which is not in any line, and since d

does not have a maximal FIS length, that is trivial.

Not outside WMytheology.

Outside WMytheology. to show that d is a line, you must be able to find

that line in your list of lines.

Inside WMytheology, apparently anything that one fails to disprove must

b true.
