If the true God said it, that IS empirical. Yours said nothing by the way, only the God of the Bible has spoken.
Hold up, Faith...lets examine this a moment. For the sake of argument, assume that Mooses "God" was human wisdom. As Clint Eastwood said, "We are legends in our own minds!"
empiricism \im-pir-e-si-zem, em-\ n : the practice of relying on observation and experiment esp. in the natural sciences empiricist \-sist\ n
So....for the sake of the argument, one side asserts God a-priori..(You and I) whereas the other side quite probably asserts that collective human wisdom plus established methods of observation and verification=facts.
Just as oil and water do not mix, neither does Faith and Science.
I am glad to see that you are back, by the way....care to hang around a bit and administrate some of the Faith/Belief topics? We sure do miss your tenacious and persistant apologetics! :)

Matt 10:39-40 "Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives the one who sent me."Jesus Christ Heb 4:12-13-- For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Holy Spirit,speaking through the Apostle Paul
