Cosmology is the study of the origin and eventual fate of the universe. Cosmology is divided into two branches, physical cosmology and religious cosmology.
Physical cosmology is the scientific study of the origin, evolution, structure, dynamics and ultimate fate of the universe. It also looks at the natural laws that keeps the universe in order. Astronomers, theoretical physicists and academic philosophers study physical cosmology. The modern study of cosmology is focused on the Big Bang theory. This theory studies observational astronomy and particle physics.
Religious cosmology, also referred to as mythological cosmology, are the beliefs based on historical, mythological, religious and esoteric literature. It looks at the traditions of creation and eschatology. Religious cosmology also looks at the world as the totality of space, time and all phenomena. This belief is mainly found by religion.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com August 18, 2018, 10:16 pm ad1c9bdddf
