DailyDead interview with Ghost Adventures’ Zak Bagans
GAC’s Zak Bagans answered some questions with DailyDead, hit the jump for the entire deal. Here’s a snippet:
Before we get into the technology side of things, can you tell me a little bit about your belief system? I see you refer to things you encounter as demons or spirits. Do you believe in many of the Christianity elements when it comes to the afterlife?
Zak Bagans: I don’t really put too much religion into what I’ve experienced. I think everything including religion is a belief, and I’m the kind of guy that needs evidence to support beliefs. When we started in the earlier seasons, we were amateurs and we’ve really evolved into a very serious level of research.
I feel sometimes that the other side has chosen us and has chosen to make its appearances and awareness to us. In that process, it has really humbled and grounded us to realize that just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist.
There are many different visual spectrums and frequencies that human beings are not in tune to with our senses. I believe there is a sixth sense that lets some of us tune into these other frequencies and spectrums, but I don’t believe that everybody has the ability.
Is this something that you believe people are born with or does it happen after a paranormal encounter?
Zak Bagans: I believe they can choose you or make themselves known and attach themselves to you. That’s where it gets into a deeper level of what science can’t even explain. Many perceive what we do to just be a television show, but it’s our experiences from our passion of what we do. There are a lot of serious things going on that the viewer doesn’t see. There are a lot of side effects that being this in tune to the other side are having on our physical bodies and our lives.
We’re constantly learning and we don’t know what to expect tomorrow. It’s kind of like a new drug. A pharmaceutical company puts out a new drug and they don’t really know the side effects until 10 or 20 years. We’ve been so far deep into the paranormal, that we’re still trying to learn what it’s doing to us.
