Or am I getting what it means wrong?

From my understanding matter is anything that is observable in the physical universe.

So everything is matter.

So then if materialism is true it's also irrelevant.

It doesn't disprove God. If God exists God is made of forms of matter, perhaps ones not discovered.

Same with ghosts, spirits, angels, demons, they could all exist and materialism would still be true.

There may be no evidence for these things but materialism does NOT disprove them. It doesn't give any reason to believe in them, but it also gives no reason to believe in anything other than those things we can observe.

So materialism proves nothing at all. It basically says "everything is made out of stuff." Well that's obvious but it doesn't really demonstrate anything.
