Traditional religion takes these answers from revelation.

Are you talking Megalith religion or something more recent?

while religion already has its own answers to these questions.

It’s hard to talk about religion without running into strawmen. That’s the problem. How do you define religion without creating a strawman, or quoting someone who amounts to a strawman?

I would say that there aren’t answers, because the act of breaking strawmen cancels out something very close to 100% of religion’s answers. So what’s left? We’re left looking at the original texts and quite a bit of work, sharing square one with philosophers and physicists.
