A lot of commodities traders have zero formal education, so yeah, I would be quick to disregard anything they have to say regarding the sciences. Just because a person trades stocks and writes a blog does not mean they have even the slightest insight to any formal science. And even if it was someone with formal math training such as a quant, I would still take what they have to say with a HUGE grain of salt. They may understand some higher level math but that doesn't qualify them to speak on physics. Finance is not a science, and if you've read any history of financial analytics then you'll know that some very intelligent people failed at attempting to treat it as such.
