    Didn't want to hurt anyone. Maybe a German thing. In German blind means two things. In addition to physically not seeing it means blind to facts. Seeing/being blind is used analogous to understanding/not understanding. So, yes it means clueless. My apologies. So, it is not insulting in my country. We know of blind people who see more than anyone else. Being physically blind as hard as it is is not as bad as not understanding. In that sense, not seeing the truths is the true blindness, the blindness of the mind. I find nothing insulting about this.
