What bad arguments?

crank wrote:with some wrong assumptions on my part, and other issues.

this is true

crank wrote: Chaitin's claim, if I understand it, is that reals are infinite precision,

That wasn't his claim.
crank wrote:but that isn't a mathematical term, so whatever, since uncomputable numbers will have an infinite, non-repeating decimal representation, they in effect contain infinite information,

uncomputable numbers have no decimal representation whatsoever, if they did, they would be computable. Uncomputables contain no information whatsoever.
