Sure, look, the ancient Greeks believed in 12 gods residing on Mt Olympus - worked for them, I suppose.

And we believe an inert substance such as gold has great value .. works for us !

I can't bring myself around however, to conclude that just because many people believe in, say ghosts in our society, that ghosts may as well be, or are, real.
So, again, and to touch on the OP's point more fully, just because (say) half the people even in our culture believe ghosts are real, doesn't make them real, nor does it make them just about real, nor can we say they may as well be real.

If you really believe this not to be the case, you have to explain why.
