Analysis / Bias
In review, Collective-Evolution promotes numerous conspiracy theories and pseudoscience. For example, they promote 9/11 conspiracies such as this: Important 9/11 Investigation Reveals Undeniable Truth. Some other topics you will find are alien visitations, chemtrails, miracle cancer cures, anti-GMO propaganda, and of course anti-Vaxx articles such as this: Why You Can’t Trust the CDC on Vaccines. There are many others as well, with the common theme being that almost none of it is supported by evidence.
