Dr Bruce Lipton: Quack or fiction?
Dr Bruce Lipton is a radical scientist.
His research into cell biology leads him to conclude that genes do not determine our lives.
Lipton also believes Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is wrong.
Darwin describes life as an ongoing struggle he termed ‘survival of the fittest.’ Lipton disagrees. Instead, co-operation is the key to survival — an ‘altruism of the fittest’ that ensures success.
He points to how bacteria and cells in the human body work in unison as one example of altruistic behaviour.
Disagreeing with Darwin, however, has not endeared him to the wider scientific community.
Possibly because Lipton also asserts that immortality is a given via a quirky protein cell synthesis.
I don’t really understand what he is talking about, but discarding my current body for a brand new one sounds pretty cool to me.
Dr Lipton’s ideas may have been rejected by many of his peers but they have been embraced by the spiritual community, particularly his views on happiness.
He believes that a lifetime of happiness is possible by reprogramming and overriding defective, unwanted and damaging genes.
He also thinks we can connect to a higher consciousness by attuning ourselves like a radio antennae.
You can decide for yourself whether he is a quack or onto something groundbreaking by reading his book, The Biology of Belief. You can also visit his website at https://www.brucelipton.com/
