Does Bell's theorem it invalidate determinism?
If yes, how does it invalidate determinism?

or does it disagree with determinism on the part of the 'behaviour of Nature',
but adds a new idea on non-local determinism on top of the part of the 'behavior of Nature' to be 'the universal deterministic behavior of Nature and non-local factors and reactions'?

What i meant would be:

1) Nature = local
2) Bell's theorem supports non-local determinism, which adds on to the deterministic behaviour of Nature..
3) Things also are determined by factors and chain reactions that happen faster than the speed of light in the determinism.

2.

3. Bell's theorem invalidates most traditional forms of local hidden variable theories. The standard implication is that you must either believe the universe is super-deterministic (so counterfactual definiteness is meaningless) or non-local (so the hidden variables can update each other at superluminal speeds) as the correlation bounds on the experiment are broken in the real world. However, non-local determinism combined with special relativity typically implies causality is broken.

Note that two things happen here, its the experimental result of doing the bell experiment combined with the theorem that cause the problems.

4. causality = things happen with a cause.

non-local determinism = things happen with a cause, but can happen at superluminal speeds.

non-local determinism = non-local casuality?

so bell's theorm shows there is non-local casuality?

Nothing happens (strictly, no information is communicated) faster than light. That is what "local" means.

7. Local: Nothing happens (strictly, no information is communicated) faster than light.
Non-Local: Things can happen (information can be communicated) faster than light.

Paraphrase: Bell's theorem shows that no information can be communicated faster than light.

Is it?

9. Oh i read it, the experiment shows "Bell's theorem has been experimentally tested and showed that locality must fail"
showing that non-locality interactions can happen.
thanks for letting me the website.

So what is determinism?
can it be: in the future, a bomb (that has a trigger detonated when the observed particle decays) will fire at e.g. 70 days from now, and the exact time and reason the particle decays, is not due to nothing (acausality), but rather determined by a non-local interaction?
