Was Stephen King Correct?

At least a few of Stephen King's works revolve around a period of time when paranormal things become active (every 27 years) - The TV show Haven & the movie IT both come to mind right away.

Is there any real-world evidence that something like this does happen? (I'm not talking about cicadas or locusts). How would a person even look at history to see if this could be true?

Does a subject like this coincide with the idea of end time prophecy (for Christians) which really took off in the late 1800s?

Have any members previously tackled this subject?

I remember a time on ATS, when members penned OPs based on their own research and experience.

This isn't an Original Post... this is a request for the research of others.

It is possible some of Stephen King's works are based on reality. This isn't the first time fiction turned into reality.

The Illuminati Card Game creators predicted 9/11:



And don't forget the Lone Gunmen:

Dude are you actually serious??
This is a perfectly fine question that delves into theories that I know I haven't thought much about of, as of yet.

Seriously, are you on the wrong website?????????????????????????????????????????????

The closest thing I can think of to this concept is the whole Time Wave Zero thing. Which is nonsense, by the way.

personally i'd expect that if this were a thing we'd have some sort of cultural knowledge about it.
myths about, say, the tides of the paranormal or what have you.
unless it's more on the scale of Game of Thrones stuff, with magic slowly leaking back into the world after thousands of years, i'd have to say it's a neat idea for stories but not much more.
and unfortunately, going by the state of the world, and this website, it seems to be a bit more the opposite.
things seem to become more terribly banal by the day.

Perhaps you feel this thread is in the wrong forum and that it should go under Dreams and Predictions?

This OP is a very valid topic as another person said.

No..

Assuming you are wanting the scientific answer and if we exclude testimonials since they are absolutely not considered science.

Mainly it hasn't been documented because there hasn't been one single confirmed case of the paranormal in all of human history..


To recognize a trend.. you would need a verifiable case and there never has been one..

Well Steven King was/is more than just a writer , maybe he is drawing creativity from other 'realities'.
27 years I associate the saturnalia and the 27 'club'.
As it is with the 'occult' Scientific hard 'evidence' well no science classifies anything paranormal/occult as non-existent not worthy for investigation.

27 years is a nice approximation of a generation (25-30 years). Arguable you could look at it as a micro populace repeating the mistakes from the most recent generation.
I last looked into it when www was relatively new (1996-ish)

The resurrection of Jesus.

Various miracles from all religions.

Mana from heaven.

How many would you like.

Science chooses to be blind where the occult is concerned.

I liked Firestarter.
The book, I mean. The others (that I read) were pretty crappy but I can understand the appeal. Sort of like taking my girlfriend to see Count Yorga at the drivein. I think Vincent Price was in it but I wasn't paying a lot of attention.
