In a recent archive post ([1]) Shan Gao has argued that quantum theory is incompatible with relativity. He calls this a new proof beyond Bells theorem, arguing elsewhere ([2]) that it closes the superdeterminism loophole in Bells theorem. Such strong claims must be backed up by irrefutable arguments. My aim in this post to the workshop “Beyond Bells theorem” is to refute Gaos “proof” and to show how quantum theory is compatible with relativity theory and so why Gaos “proof” does not take us beyond Bells theorem.
