And I, God, said: Let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, ...

God created everything (Gen 1.1). If sin exists, God created it . The question really should be then Why did God create sin?"

Holy Ghost is KJV, Holy Spirit is modern translations. Its a little more complicated than that. In the New Testament, the KJV uses the term Holy Ghost 89 times, and the term Holy Spirit 4 times. So it actually uses both. But modern translations use Holy Spirit exclusively. The wikipedia article is not saying that Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit are understood ...
