>Be me on university lecture
>Professor is ``proving'' a theorem
>I realize what he is telling us is straight up bullshit
>I immediatly stand up in the middle of the lecture
>Tell him that what he means by proof is only valid if we take the axiom of infinity for granted
>The rest of the class turns silent the moment I spoke
>Professor is speechless
>He says there is no reason to not accept the existence of infinite sets
>I yell at him that putting an adjective in front of a noun does not in itself make a mathematical concept. Cantor who turned mathematics into a bad joke declared that an infinite set is a set which is not finite. Its like declaring that an all-seing leprechaun is a leprechaun which can see everything. These grammatical constructions do not create concepts, excepts perhaps in a literary or poetic sense.
>Professor is visibly nervous and starts shaking
>He has no arguments and tells me to leave the lecture hall for disturbing the class
>The rest of the class stands up with me and says that if im expelled from the lecture they will leave too
>Professor starts crying and decides to leave the lecture hall in tears and ashamed
>Everyone starts clapping for me and chanting my name

>PROFESSOR IS SPEECHLESS
>HE SAYS THERE IS NO REASON TO NOT ACCEPT THE EXISTENCE OF INFINITE SETS
>I YELL AT HIM THAT PUTTING AN ADJECTIVE IN FRONT OF A NOUN DOES NOT IN ITSELF MAKE A MATHEMATICAL CONCEPT. CANTOR WHO TURNED MATHEMATICS INTO A BAD JOKE DECLARED THAT AN INFINITE SET IS A SET WHICH IS NOT FINITE. ITS LIKE DECLARING THAT AN ALL-SEING LEPRECHAUN IS A LEPRECHAUN WHICH CAN SEE EVERYTHING. THESE GRAMMATICAL CONSTRUCTIONS DO NOT CREATE CONCEPTS, EXCEPTS PERHAPS IN A LITERARY OR POETIC SENSE.
>PROFESSOR IS VISIBLY NERVOUS AND STARTS SHAKING
