I should add here that Philip Pearle interpreted his excellent analysis in terms of data rejection, or what is now called a "detection loophole". But that is an incorrect interpretation of what is going on, not the least because it requires non-vanishing Delta, which contradicts at least some of the predictions of quantum mechanics.

The correct interpretation of what is going on, without setting Delta = 0, is in terms of the very geometry and topology of the 3D space in which all such experiments are necessarily performed, as I have explained in the following paper and the event-by-event numerical simulations cited therein:
