More of that "pre-sup" shit then?
"the Christian faith is unique in its ability to answer all four of these questions"
But are the answers correct? Can Christians even agree among themselves what the correct answers are?
In Math class you have to "show your work" to get credit for solving a problem. An unverifiable (unfalsifiable) answer is really no answer at all. It's what they call "not even wrong".
Science does give a pretty good answer for question of origin, although I confess that even though I've read books about the Big Bang, I don't fully understand it. I'm pretty sure that even scientists still have remaining questions about the Big Bang and it's not totally 100% nailed down yet. And questions like "what was there before the Big Bang" may simply be unknowable. Likewise, with Evolution, it provides a great, testable answer about the origin of species, and where we humans came from, but it doesn't quite go back to the very beginning: what was the very first life-form, from which everything from people to algae to fungi to viruses is descended? That one is probably more knowable than the Big Bang, but we haven't quite got there yet.
Science also has a good answer for "destiny" but for the universe, not for the "destiny" of humankind. Eventually the sun will run out of hydrogen for fusion and will become a red giant, which will consume the Earth. Eventually all stars will run out and there will be no more fuel to light up the universe. It will be maximum entropy and heat death.
For the other two questions, you need something other than science: philosophy. But there's no reason that a "worldview" can't incorporate both science and philosophy. So there is in fact a rational "worldview" that gives better answers to all of those questions than Christianity can. Christianity demands you simply accept its answers "on faith". Faith itself (belief without evidence) is seen as a virtue for Christians. Why?
