From that post:
"Cantor's Diagonal Argument is a fake for many reasons. The first is Cantor's starting point which assumes that you can list all the "real" numbers. "
1. Clearly someone doesn't understand what a proof by contradiction is. 2. Clearly someone doesn't understand that if you cannot list all the "real" numbers, then they are uncountable by definition. So even if Cantor is wrong, he is right.
But somehow the argument - especially the ridiculous mistakes made - remind me of some other poster...
