Note that $z:\mathbb{R}(0, 1) \rightarrow \mathbb{R}(-r, 1-r)$ is a bijection where $z(x) = x – r$. If $q \in A \land r \notin A$, then $z(q) = q – r \notin B_r$ because the difference between a rational number and an irrational number is not a rational number. Therefore, $f(q) \neq z(q) \Rightarrow k_r – r = t \land t \neq 0$. 4) If $r, s \in \mathbb{R}(0,1)$, then $r \neq s \Rightarrow k_r \neq k_s$. 5) If $r, s \in \mathbb{R}(0,1)$, then $k_r \neq k_s \Rightarrow r \neq s$. 6) Therefore, $r, s \in \mathbb{R}(0,1) \land r \neq s \iff k_r \neq k_s$. Let $g(k_r) = r$ for any $r \in \mathbb{R}(0, 1)$. 7) Let $C = g(q_1), g(q_2), g(q_3),$ … = $\mathbb{R}(0,1)$. The Continuum Hypothesis states “there is no set whose cardinality is strictly between that of the integers and the real numbers.” Where $C = \mathbb{R}(0, 1)$, this statement is true because: |$\mathbb{R}(0,1)$| = |$\mathbb{R}$| = |$\mathbb{N}$| = |$\mathbb{Z}$|.

This appears to be the faulty statement. I apologize for not putting a crankery warning on this post as I should have. I'm not so naive to think there wasn't something wrong and I thank everyone here for not jumping on me for it. I got caught up in a line of thinking over the past few days that blinded me a little (odd how that works) so will take some time to think it over more.
