How can you debate with a guy that pulls all of his "facts" out of his ass. Nothing he spews has any basis in truth, it's just made up as he goes along. Has he ever documented anything to back up his nonsense?

ANSI and NFPA are private organizations. I have a hunch that any others contributing to NEC are also private organizations. NEC is a product of NFPA more than anything else.
Underwriters' Laboratories is a private organization.
Private organizations do not make laws. Only governments make laws.
The NEC is law only where gubmint makes it the law, and USA's Federal gubmint does not make NEC into law. Maybe 98-99% of USA's population lives in counties or municipalities where the building code makes NEC in full as of some specific year (sometimes with further restrictions) into law. Some localities forbid retailing of electrical equipment of kinds that UL establishes listing requirements for but is not listed by UL or one of its competitors. Fire insurance companies can cause grief over using electrical equipment "other than as directed" or if UL has requirements for it to be listed and the equipment is not listed by UL (or one of their competitors). Failure of building work to comply with NEC may contribute to one who did non-compliant work to be on the short end of a civil court case.
But the writers of NEC do not make law, and USA's Federal gubmont is generally not in the business of building codes (even though they regulate employment and workplace safety practices and manufacturing, and usage and disposal and transportation of some materials).
(Strange fun fact: Ballastless light bulbs are usually not UL listed, even if they are of the "Big 3" brands, GE, Philips, Osram-Sylvania.)
