Can You Really Learn Anything In 3 Months?

So, recently I did a video called "Coding Is Not The Same As Programming" and I've received a lot of comments on there. Definitely, it was one of my most popular videos and it polarized all my viewers.

However, one of the comments gathered my attention. Here are some of the comments that made me record this video:

"No, no, no, no, no. If you think people can become even a remotely decent programmer in 3 months, you are not just over optimistic, You are flat out wrong. An the claim that you could in a focus 3 months become a better biologist than some one who has been doing it for 10 years, you are caching a check that your ass can't cover. You sir are a fraud!"

"Simple Programmer is completely delusional in this video, sure you could write 4 novels in 3 months but they would all suck, there is no way you would be able to learn 4 real instruments in 3 months time, by real instruments I mean drums, guitar, piano, etc. not something like a shaker, get real dude, no matter how much adderall or ritalin you go on you're stretching the limit quite a bit. Focus is one thing, but time put in is another thing."

So, it really got me thinking and I decided to record a video about that. Are these people right? Couldn't you learn anything you wanted in 3 months? Are they right or am I wrong?
