On the last point I believe determinism, to be causal, reduces experiments to a single cause resulting in a single effect.
Determinism never causes anything.
Determinism ONLY produces results given a state.
Determinism PLUS state generates effects.
Nothing happens without the state.
We are part of the state.
Therefore we are part of the cause.
When something is "part of a cause" they are "responsible" for the effect.
Therefore we are responsible for the effect, as we are part of the cause.
