For our entertainment, please tell us: Is there a 50 billionth prime? 
That's a high school level math question, so if it follows the same pattern as the 5.6° steak, expect Joe to have the correct answer by around July :D 
Again, with the reading comprehension issues:
The thing with the primes is the mapping function (to the naturals; N). There should be one. Mathematicians should be able to produce one.
For every countably infinite set there should be such a mapping function.
With JoeMath that would be one objective, to find them.
With JoeMath, the value of the naturals would be N (sounds weirdly familiar). All countably infinite sets' cardinalities would be relative to N.
The point is if the cardinalities are the same (with countably infinite sets) then basic set subtraction should confirm that. And yet it doesn't.
So all we are left with is the very unsatisfying "It's infinity, dude. Like it all becomes one, man."
But all that is moot if you consider the fundamental contradiction of having a set with infinite elements...
What part of that are YOU too stupid to understand? 
Heh. Seems that the Joemathematician is afraid of where this question will lead.
Here's a hint, Joe: There is a 50 billionth prime, even if no one can name it.
That was proven over 2000 years ago. Using real math, not Joemath. 
LoL! So keiths is too stupid to understand what I post.
keiths is so stupid he thinks one can collect that which is unknown. But hey, keiths is so stupid he thinks someone can collect infinite elements.
Here's a HINT keiths: The question was NEVER if there are infinite primes 
Joe, this is pitifully simple, which is no doubt why you are struggling.
You don't have to "collect" all the primes in order to show that there's a bijection between them and the naturals. You just need to show that they can be put into an ordered list. 
LoL! You are the one struggling, keiths.
A SET is a COLLECTION, dumbass.
But thank you for proving that you are too fucking senile to understand my posts. 
Joe,
Let's talk about the properties of the set {1,2,3...,999999999,1000000000}.
We'll wait while you go and collect all the elements. 
LoL! keiths is proud to be desperate and clueless.
