Can you shoot manual without being in manual?

From the Digital Photography School article:

Digital cameras are incredibly intelligent and powerful tools. They
can detect and read light, decide exposure values, adjust for white
balance, detect contrast to achieve focus, and a whole list of other
things that go on behind the scenes that we never even notice. DSLR’s
are so smart in fact, that some new photographers make the argument that
there is no reason to ever get out of automatic! While I could write an
entire article on why that would be a mistake, I will tuck that away
for later.

Manual shooting is something that many photogs (even pro’s) are
afraid of. When you shoot manual, you are basically turning most of your
camera’s systems off. You still have a light meter, but you have to
decide if that meter is going to be correct or not. To do this, you have
to adjust both aperture and shutter speed to get the correct exposure.
