      1. Well, his dis-belief in God is (apparently) grounded in cynicism and in disdain for the ritualism of organized religion. These are all shaky points for grounding: cynicism is forgotten on a good day (or instinctively abandoned for wishful thinking in a true crisis), rituals aren’t strictly necessary for religion. That’s why the atheism is shallow.

        Moreover, his self-worth seems to be grounded in external validation of his achievements, that is to say, not well-grounded. As a character he’s set up to be easily placed in a situation where he might start questioning himself (and beliefs).
