I I think I'm a peculiar person to be speaking about secularism in the Academy in part in large part because I consider the secular a myth and I consider it a meta physical impossibility the second the notion of the secular assumes that there is a an area of life from which God is absent and since I don't actually believe that the secular seems to me to be an illusion you

Stephen Carter is merely saying that he believes in God, and that he therefore thinks secularism is a false idea.

It does not follow that secularism is a metaphysical impossibility, anymore than the idea of a Creator God is a metaphysical impossibility.

Which idea is more likely to be true? That's the question.
