True, from theoretical standpoint, no random number is completely random. However, what I implied by "completely random" in case of true random numbers was that it's completely unpredictable, not something that is in anyone's conscious control, or is based on pre existing data in computer.

The word entropy itself implies pure randomness, making the source of random number completely random.
