Abstract: Using the Descriptive Psychology concepts of Totalities, Ultimates, and Boundary Conditions, I will briefly survey modern scientific cosmology and physics. I will show that science does provide ultimate explanations for the totality of the
physical universe that may seem to compete with the explanations of religion. But I will also review the Descriptive application of these concepts to theology and
metaphysics to argue that nonetheless science cannot displace religion in a complete account of the world.
