Mission Statement


The Doubting Thomas Research Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to investigating the historicity of Biblical accounts and their possible reconciliations with modern understandings of science, archaeology and history. We believe there is solid, credible evidence within archaeology and other scientific disciplines supporting the historical accuracy of the Biblical text. We believe many scholars have overlooked this by looking for evidence in the wrong time period(s) or wrong location(s), which is something several professionals in the field have pointed out as well.
DTRF currently specializes in documenting theories about Moses, the Exodus route and possible locations of Mount Sinai. Additionally, we are engaged in and will continue to engage in projects related to other eras of Biblical history. It should be noted though that Doubting Thomas Research Foundation is not a proselytizing organization.
Lastly, due to our President, Ryan Mauro's, background and work in international affairs and counter-terrorism/extremism, DTRF will engage in projects related to these fields too. This will include rescue efforts of persecuted Christians/Jews, as well as other people facing threats from radical extremists in areas around the world.

Our Goal

We seek for the truth wherever it may lead. We are committed to the highest standards of integrity and academic honesty, and will review our research when new evidence is brought to light regarding competing theories.


We will, at all times, conduct ourselves with the highest standards of professionalism, and will never seek to disparage opposing viewpoints or those that hold opposing viewpoints.


As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we will always be open and transparent with our donors about how our foundation operates. Donors can reach out to us at any point and request information about our operations and how their dollars are being used.

Research Sourcing

We base our research on a wide variety of sources, including primary documents, religious texts and traditions, modern scholarly assessment, and on-the-ground visitation. We will consider valid and relevant evidence from any of these types of sources during the course of our studies.
