.999999999... eventually = 1
So more realistically:
1 - .99999999... = 0
That's theory, though.

Why on Earth do you keep saying .9... evetually = 1???
IT DOESN'T. It eventually continues on forever as .9... it never EVER reaches one. IT IS A FRACTION OF 1.
1 - .9... = .0...1
To get your calculator to say .9... when you start with 1, you will have to subtract .0...1
1 - .0...1 = .9...
TO SUBTRACT FROM ONE. MEANS IT IS LESS THAN ONE.
1 != .9...
1 > .9...

You are right, there is no way to represent 1/3 in decimal form. Actually, using your very own logic, even YOUR representation for 1/3 doesn't exist.
.3... is not a real number.

1 - .9999 = .0001
1 - .99999 = .00001
1 - .999999 = .000001
1 - .9999999 = .0000001
1 - .99999999... = .00000000...1
The chart above proves the existance of .0...1
Basicly it is the faith that the pattern will continue. I'm sorry you don't have faith.

One last post. Couldn't miss this blaring contradiction:
He just said .333333... is not a real number. Yet before, his amazing theory to proved that .0000000000000...1 existed:
Tisk tisk. Pick a stance and stick with it. Either infinite exist, or they don't. Make up your mind (not that it will help you win, you just won't look as foolish).

Anyway, the 1 cannot exist on the end of that number. You cannot say that it started as 0.1 and you simply added zeroes in the middle infinitely, and now is infinitely growing. A NUMBER CANNOT GROW! It is static.

I don't think you understand my level of understanding of the universe, and you are mistaking me for a simple child of man.
You are now repeating what I have already said. Why are you creating a diversion? You are trying to tell me that .9... can also (in itself) be called ONE because it too is a single thing. But you are double counting.
You are basicly saying, for example:
You have 1 apple, you cut it into 9 slices, and you give each slice to 9 kids. Then you ask them, "how many pieces do you have children?" They reply "ONE".
That is basicly how childish you all seem.

When you understand that one apple is only an fraction of the universe, then you'll know of what you so poorly speak of and are so loosely holding onto and unconfident in that you must slander others characters instead of sticking to the math.

I was metaphorically speaking when I said that .9... is the apple and 1 is the universe. Obviously you didn't get the analogy.
Think of 1 as the universe. EVERYTHING that exists, is inside of this 1 universe. One of those things that exists inside of this universe, is .9...
That means, .9... will ALWAYS be less than 1.
The only thing that equals 1 is ALL.
.9... is only a fraction of ALL.
It will always be less than 1.
.9... < 1
