In comparison of religion and cosmology as a natural science there is a primer distinguishing feature that is different language. In this sense there exist possible compromises in usage of the common language or the usage of only one of those languages in the common communication. Even if it seems that the science and theology blend together, but in the positive sense it is not the necessary but the contingent relation. Even if there is a different answer, sometimes they can examine the same problem from their own point of view and with different competencies for the answers. The example of the common question and their mutual problem, but of course with the different answers, it is the problem of the origin of the universe. Theology of Judaism, Christianity and Islam together with several myths of Bönism and Zoroastrism explain the origination of universe by the chief intelligible entity, but on the other side cosmology explains this origin in the language that deals with the step by step destruction of interactions, formation of leptons and hadrons up to the formation of systems and planets. This language has even the limits in the form of non-extrapolation of the general theory of relativity in the space-time fields smaller than 10–33 cm and 10–43 s. Situation is complicated by the incompatibility between VTR and quantum theory. While in this situation religion and theology are able to answer the question of the origin of the universe using their own tools, the cosmology in the recent paradigm starts the way of speculations. Various theories and hypothesis try to answer it, but in the principle they are not able to find the solution by any tool. Even though the religion could find some deeper answers, the basic grounds of the answers is its’ faith in the basal claims. Transcendental theology tries to answer the questions that can not be answered by the competency, language and scientifical patterns limited cosmology. Religion shows the existence of the different world from the world of phenomena. By this means helps also scientifically oriented intellectual to create his holistic picture of world even beyond the competencies of cosmology.
