No: I'm sorry that there are people out there who are trying to frighten you by telling you foolish things. There's nothing "spiritual" about this kind of superstition. Male pattern baldness is genetic and correlates with how much chest hair you got. Your muscle development is a mix of genetics and how much resistance training you do. Embrace your masculinity and talk with someone sensible - even dad.
