Bell's theorem - for or against Hidden Variables?
That's a mathematical -- not physical -- principle.

In my opinion, the most important contribution of the Joy Christian “exploding balls” experiment is the introduction of a non-arbitrary initial condition rather than preparing particles in a supposedly entangled state.

There is a widespread belief – articulated in this thread by Richard Gill – that quantum mechanics is different from classical mechanics.   Despite the failure of theorists and experimentalists to show where the demarcation is, or where the quantum wave function becomes classical, the belief persists that classical behavior “somehow” derives from quantum rules.

The classical experiment turns this belief on its head, in a locally realistic manner, by removing the special conditions required to violate Bell’s inequality by Bell-Aspect and CHSH type experiments.  Joy takes his cue from Newton, to “make no hypothesis” toward physical phenomena.  

We should see that for every explosion sharing a common time parameter, that time conservation demands negative correlation between hemispheres.  (See d'Espagnat's bold type explanation in http://www.scientificamerican.com/media/...1_0158.pdf)   This will apply every time the explosion is repeated – implying correlation all the way back to the cosmic initial condition, and reinforcing Einstein’s expectation (Geometry and Experience) that two clocks, having once been synchronized, will remain synchronized when brought back into proximity.

If successful, Joy’s experiment will be remembered in history alongside Galileo’s.
