There are two very different senses in which the term "Cosmology" is used.
- Physical cosmology is the scholarly and academic study of questions about the ultimate fate of the universe. The subject matter of this field is studied using scholarly methodology, including the scientific method and reason. It is studied by scientists, such as astronomers and theoretical physicists; and academic philosophers, such as metaphysicians, philosophers of physics, and philosophers of space and time.
- Religious cosmology (or mythological cosmology) is a body of beliefs based on the historical, mythological, religious, and esoteric literature and theories about eschatology (i.e. the end of the world), including such theories, as for instance apocalypticism.
