    There is a bijection between the set of all decimal numbers and all whole numbers.\[0.00000000001\mapsto 1\]\[0.00000020000\mapsto 2\]We can do this for all whole numbers.

    How can there be different infinities? I find the argument completely pointless. What do you think?

    @UnkleRhaukus How do you say that? If you say that the set of whole numbers is less than the set of decimal numbers, I'd just add one to the number of whole numbers you claimed to have shown and I'd prove it wrong.

    Try it, make the set of whole numbers which you believe has infinite elements. It'd still be a subset of the set of whole numbers, right?

    OK, I think it'd be bad to challenge such conjectures. Closing...

    Discussion about its validity is made there which am trying to grasp.
