How to Explain the Heroism of the Japanese People?

A brief hello from the depths of my cave!

The Tohoku quake merits a mention, because it so clearly illustrates a point that so many theists seem to have trouble understanding. The Japanese people have responded to the disaster with a courage, discipline and heroism that has earned them the admiration of people around the world.

The Japanese are de facto atheists; quibble with that all you want, but they're certainly not Christians. Remind us again, what was that about morality being impossible without belief in God?
