Your question about whether ghosts exist and whether God exists is a complicated and interesting one. Both of these things are usually entirely based on personal opinion.

A ghost is generally considered to be a person that has died and cannot move on to another level or which comes back for some reason or another, perhaps unfinished business. People have supposedly photographed and recorded ghosts but whether these photographs and recordings are real is based on personal opinion.

The concept of God is also based on personal opinion. This is usually based on religious faith.
