The problem that there are many of self-proclaimed "sound engineers". Those aren't actually engineers at all. There are some short careers (2 years or so) with title of "multimedia designer" or "sound recording" etc.

In Germany, at least, you can't just call yourself "engineer" (Ing.), since the job title is protected by law. You have to have a degree from an university (of applied sciences) to be allowed to take the job title. Though this has only been the case for 40 years now. I gathered this info from the german wikipedia. So here self-proclaimed engineers should be rare to find. Maybe that's why I am shocked when statements like in the article are made by engineers.

Even if it were real engineers, I wonder what actual percentage of them believe in such stuff.

I don't suspect (or hope) that there are a lot of engineers who think that way, maybe the surge of articles dealing with the anti-digital engineers has a sampling bias by the media. It is probably not as interesting to report about engineers who know what they're doing and don't make up colorful terms when talking about their craft.
