Would You Like To Debate Infinity In Math?

Hi Richard,

For many decades now, ever since I first learned about Cantor's infinities, I have been looking for someone with whom I could debate the merits and demerits of the inclusion of the notion into mathematics. You just might be the guy I have been looking for, if you are interested.

If I present my arguments as to why I think the axiom of choice should not be adopted in the foundations of mathematics, thus obviating Cantor's construction, would you be willing to try to refute them? If so, you may choose to do so on this forum or by email. I have a hunch that there aren't many people on this forum who would be interested in that debate, but if you want to do it here, that would be fine with me.

I sincerely hope you are interested.

Warm regards,
