I would completely agree with your conclusion if the bugs from statically typed languages were all compilation errors. I suspect they are not.
Also, I could agree if the bug density of statically typed languages weren't all over the place. Note that Go is statically typed and one of the languages that I would call simple.
The post is not research. It doesn't say so anywhere, the post says "naïve", "not conclusive" and "opinion".
For research, read the link near the word naïve.
Also I would suggest to read the comments and watch the videos from Blaine. They are very cool and probably closer to your taste.
