Why is Simmons so offended by being called "ignorant"? Dawkins writes, I believe correctly, that "Not only is ignorance no crime. It is also, fortunately, remediable." It is not as if PZ called Simmons "...stupid, insane, or wicked." I daresay, Simmons should be thankful for PZ's merciful word choice - he could have used other equally accurate terms, albeit more acerbic (e.g. stupid). Good riddance.
