The Docuseries

Computer simulations are used to improve surgical techniques, plan military strategy, and increase manufacturing output…so why not use it to study one of the most potent forces in our social world? 

In The M.R.P., a group of world-class religion scholars and computer simulation experts work together for three years–narrated over 8 episodes–to build a series of computer models of scientific theories of religion. As they construct these tools, they also teach others how to use models to understand religion better. 

This is the story of an experiment to apply the cutting-edge technology of modeling and simulation to the study of religion in order to enhance academic theories of religious belief and behavior…in order to understand religion better, together.
