Don't hold your breath for a tsunami of atheism

Those TED talks continue to be fascinating. I happened to catch this one recently:

If there was ever a person more primed to lose his faith, it's this guy. The fact that he's completely willing to rewrite all his beliefs in an attempt to account for a god that allows tsunamis but doesn't consider the other obvious possibility is pretty stunning. He's clearly a smart well spoken person, but the thought that there is no god, despite the fact that every attempt to make sense of god seems to have failed him, is not even on the table. What is he even getting from his religion at this point besides confusion?
