Living Texts Initiative

Most pressingly, conventional media is failing those who seek reliable information on ideologies such as Islam.

Our first project, the Living Quran, will tackle the rise of Islamic extremism and Islamophobia. In time, we will map all of the world’s major texts, from the Quran to the Bible, from philosophies to the US Constitution, and distill the shared essence that is our human nature.

Our Living Quran project allows people to dig into the core text of Islam. With the help from knowledgeable individuals, religious communities are empowered to reclaim ownership of their holy text, and society is liberated from a dependence on biased sources and emotional volatility.

We believe this will lead people to make better informed decisions about their own beliefs, by providing contextualized and authoritative information, that prevents distortion and exploitation of ignorance.
