There really was no list of positives.

Yes, there was.
Prove it.
And one can have a starter list of researchers without advertising. Now, do you have any more evidence of obtuseness you wish to submit?
Yes. How do you wish to start a university without naming it? You know, the question I asked.

The absolute state of this board.
I did ask for more evidence of your obtuseness, so thanks for obliging. I already answered your question with a possibility. For some reason, I understand that it is possible to start a project with necessarily first naming it.

Actually it is not possible. Any large, complex, administrative project that requires written and verbal discussion among people needs to be named, even if its a placeholder name until the final name is settled.

All I see in the OP is the "We are sick of complaining..." which is not a positive. So still waiting for actual evidence other than a handwave.

You are shifting your stupid goal posts. A formative stage does not necessarily require a name first. Moreover, you have now added the assumptions of a large complex administrative project, when we have no clue what they envision. And, of course, it was possible for them to have more detail worked out before their proclamation. For example, they could have said they already have raised $_______ for this project, and already have _________ lined up as possible instructors. #### Metaphor ##### Sjajna Zvijezda You are shifting your stupid goal posts.

They envision a university, which is a large, complex, administrative project. I really feel you should know this, since you work at one. Do you know how I know they envision a university? Because everyone has their knickers in a twist over the use of the word 'university'.

Also, the OP lists the positives they aspire to. If you cannot read, I cannot help you.

Because everyone has their knickers in a twist over the use of the word 'university'. A university need not be large nor complex, especially at a formative stage. I am fairly confident you have no clue what they envision for a university. The source of my confidence is your straw man - my knickers are not in a twist over their use of the word "university", hence your claim is, as usual, rhetorical bullshit. Also, the OP lists the positives they aspire to. If you cannot read, I cannot help you. Two chances to provide evidence and you have failed. Even allowing for the vacuous "the fearless search of truth" as a positive, there are not others. #### Metaphor ##### Sjajna Zvijezda A university need not be large nor complex, especially at a formative stage.

I'm glad to hear it. laughing dog does not object to The University of Austin calling itself that, even before they establish a program offering degrees. He merely wanted to chastise me for imagining you couldn't form a university without naming it. #### Metaphor ##### Sjajna Zvijezda Two chances to provide evidence and you have failed.

But, the two situations are not nearly alike. Men cannot become women, because mammals cannot change sex. However, new Universities can be formed. It's been done many times before. There are three layers of gender identity: • Chromosomal • Somatic • Psychological The three identities usually match, but there are sometimes mismatches, and trans people have somatic-psychological mismatch. #### Metaphor ##### Sjajna Zvijezda Gender ideologists believe that transwomen are women without having taken any medical or social steps at all.

So that nobody is bamboozled by these obvious charlatans. Institute or Foundation works pretty well. Calling oneself a university implies a legitimacy one has not earned. And if they genuinely want legitimacy, they should submit their courses to review for independent accreditation. But in all honesty, I'm not too bent out of shape if they want to call themselves a university. I'm not inflexible when it comes down to word definitions. #### laughing dog ##### Contributor Two chances to provide evidence and you have failed.

Grifters gotta grift.

Austin already has a university. It's called The University of Texas at Austin. You know how much time elapsed between when The University of Texas at Austin was established and started accumulating its endowment, and when it enrolled its first class of college students? Twenty-five years. I think it's only fair we give the new guys on the block a little time to get up and running before we start calling them grifters.

Ironically enough, a more cursory search would have kept you from looking absurd:

2 minutes on Google and looking through the University of Austin's website would be sufficient to tell you the name of the taxable entity that the donations are currently going to in order to manage funds for the project. That entity is on the tax list.

As to whether or not one should believe that entity is organizing a university as advertised or is a complete scam, I have no solid basis on which to speculate.

The University of Austin's website is here.

The form to search the tax list is here.

Between those two links, it is possible to find the taxable entity that donations are going to and confirm that it is such a taxable entity in the state of Texas. This can be easily done.

If nobody else does it, then I'll do it in a bit, post about it, and slightly lower my expectations moving forward.

I have the rather controversial opinion that plans should be at least longer and more comprehensive than what is written in a fortune cookie, The University of Austin has failed to achieve this. That's I way I described their attempt as insipid platitudes. Valid criticism in my opinion.
