John Cramer's trying to work that out in his transactional

That's a bit simplistic. The nett result of EPR/Bell/Aspect is either-
indeterminism-or-nonlocal-hidden-variable. If NLHV's can be disproved,
that proves indeterminism
Actually there is a third alternative, which is to take the time
symmetry of physical law seriously, as suggested by Huw Price in
"Time's Arrow and Archimedes' Point". That explains all the above (EPR/
Bell/Aspect) without any additional assumptions such as FTL
signalling, causality violation, hidden variables etc. (Bell himself
admitted that this was the only loophole in his argument.)
