No. The obvious reason is that you are too stupid.

I don't rememeber every detail about your crap.

Then provide evidence that he actually said what you ascribe to him,
quotefaker. From what he has written it is evident that he did not doubt the
correctness of "Cantor's proof" but its significance in certain contexts
which is a totally different issue. But as your understanding is limited to
blunt statements of opinion and the reasons behind these opinions are
Bohemian villages to you, I understand that you can not see the difference.
Because you are too stupid for anything serious (that is, going beyond
fooling your poor students).
