FlipObamney is implying that we must know who wrote the code in order to able to trust it. His argument is flawed because we don't have to trust any person, we can just read the code to understand what it does in order to trust it.

It's the same as with linux for which I bet you also don't know who wrote the first bit of code and yet millions of websites and servers trust it to be the most secure free platform they can find to host their websites on.
