You said:
Thinking that the spin or polarization is carried by the photon contradicts quantum mechanics which says that such propeties of particles are not determined until measured, and then they are random.

(Quantum mechanics does not say properties of particles are not fixed until measured, it only says that the properties can not be known by us until they are measured.)

If your explanation were true, nobody would ever bother to do such an experiment. Besides your explanation predicts that sometimes the states are not opposite. That has never been seen in these experiments.

( For an experiment to accomplish identical spins an absorption media must be found which will absorb the photon when its in an alternate field state. This medium may not exist or be stable and therefore may not be available.)

I too learn from these discussions. My last post in the Big Bang forum is such an example.

Also frame dragging has been verified for the Earth See:

Thanks that site was a big help.
