Since the 1940’s, simulation and modeling has been used to study, problem-solve and make decisions, to enable a risk-free environment for testing systems in nearly all industries. However, Religion is rarely if ever studied using modeling and simulation, until now. The Modeling Religion Project (MRP) began July 1st, 2015. A collaboration between the Institute of Bio-Cultural Study of Religion (IBCSR), and the Virginia Modeling, Simulation & Analysis Center (VMASC), and “an ambitious attempt to connect the sciences of modeling and simulation (M&S) with the scientific study of religion (SSR).”
