Sure -- I should qualify my viewpoint --
If you are building furniture for your house, or computing gas mileage for your car, or
some other common task -- involving the "here and now," the empirical method will work.
But, even these deserve inquiry with God -- maybe God wants you doing something different.
But, if you're talking about consciousness, God, the future, eternity, salvation, human nature,
gender, evil, or anything along these lines, the empirical method will fail you.
To reach the truth in such matters we must have:
An all-knowing person - aka. God
2. Who is reliable
3. Who is accessible
The Bible is the answer
to these requirements.
However, one, MUST, use
the Jury Duty method, - that is - compare testimonies and physical evidences together, over a wide range on particulars, to
confirm that the bible IS God's book.
Also, one must be
very fussy, finicky, etc., in what one decides IS true bible text and what is NOT.

WHY THE KING JAMES BIBLE
IS THE BIBLE REALLY THE WORD OF GOD?
CREATION AND SCRIPTURE MUST GO TOGETHER -- THE JURY DUTY APPROACH
They Came to Jesus! ALSO!
