Bell's theorem - for or against Hidden Variables?

We are doing normal science. We have some hypotheses, and combined together they lead to testable predictions, like Bell's inequalities.

If you don't know elementary scientific methodology, this is your problem. Testable predictions are the result of application of the whole theory, in fact even several different theories (like theories about how all the measurement devices work). Simple principles, taken alone, are typically untestable.

Once one can derive, starting from Einstein causality and realism, that the QM prediction has to be wrong, these experiments reject the combination of Einstein causality and realism. Live with this.
