It is trivially wrong. You can't do finite operations on an infinite set and expect a rational result. Cantor makes the same mistake. The only way to draw rational conclusions about infinite sets is to specify explicitly what each member is or use induction.

A person who has studied the problem for years and has written and published a peer reviewed paper is trivially wrong? Has this ever happened? I could see such a paper to contain a subtle mistake, it's happened plenty of times before, but not a trivial one. Once again I think you need to review your Mathematics. Dan

Consider the set of natural numbers. Color the 1st red, the 2nd blue, the 3rd red, the 4th blue, and so on, alternately. Obviously the number of reds and blues are equal. Right?
