Bell's theorem - for or against Hidden Variables?

No, it wasn't a mistake. No scientific theory can be verified (Popper was one of the only philosophers to take David Hume seriously); falsifiability carries the weight of verisimilitude for the whole theory.

I don't expect you mean to call the founders of quantum theory incompetent, do you?    

I would love to debate Bell from a philosophical point of view.  Thanks for opening the door.
