Bell's theorem - for or against Hidden Variables?
(07-15-2016, 06:26 PM)Thomas Ray Wrote: Uh, logic is not science.

By using pure logic only,  Bell's theorem says that a certain class of mathematical models can not reproduce the results that quantum mechanics predicts, and that we see in experiments.  You are of course free to disagree whether this should be called science or not.

If you think you have a counterexample to Bell's theorem, there is something called the Quantum Randi Challenge.  While giving an exact operational definition of what the physics community means by the phrase "hidden local variable theory", the challenge also has the monetary lure of surely securing the winner a Nobel prize.
