Hmmmm. It seems to me that by relying on empirical observation you
are forced to reject much of human creation.
For example, pretty much all of philosophy, schools of thought and
belief systems. Political theory, ethics and ideologies all have to be
dismissed as unquantifiable.
You may wish to do this for the purposes of argument, but people can't
live without an assortment of belief systems.
