AbstractCOSMOLOGY, SCIENCES, AND TECHNOLOGY: SHIFTING OF PARADIGM AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR RELIGIOUS STUDIES. The universe, aside from being “subject matter” of cosmology, is also one of the determining coordinates of paradigm development. The transition happening in the realm of cosmology circular will result in a paradigm shift and the achievement of civilization. It is the circularity of this development which is found in the human civilization. This paper seeks to tread the development in a descriptive-explorative way. From this point, this study reveals three things: first, the development of science and technology of modern humans is influenced by the Cartesian-Newtonian model of cosmology; Secondly, in spite of its spectacular success, positivistic character of modern cosmology still has an internal defect. Such faulty is evidently demonstrated by blasphemies arising from the same area cultivated by the old cosmology, although they appear with many assumptions at odds with the old one. Third, the implications of changes in cosmology also penetrate other dimensions of human life, especially religion. Such transitions require religion not merely to stand on the doctrinaire attitudes relying on sacred texts, but it should also consider other elements which previously have not been taken into account.Kata Kunci: sains Islam; filsafat ilmu; epistemologi
