As a result of that definition in my studies, I found that there is 1 evidence that meets this definition. But only under highly specific conditions.
The Evidence I propose is prophecy and the conditions that I propose make prophecy reliable/Quantifiable and Empirical (Edit) are such:
1. The prophecy has to be proven as written before the fact
2. It has to be proven that it was intended as a prophecy to begin with
3. It has to be highly specific to avoid any type of biased interpretation and it has to be proven to have actually come true exactly as described by non religious secular historians.
4. It has to be proven as unaltered to match any specific agenda
5.To make sure to avoid the label of coincidence, there has to be multiple examples of prophecy fulfillment and not just one. You need at least 3 to demonstrate a pattern.
6. Most important of all: Any interpretation of prophecy has to exist before it was fulfilled. It cannot be introduced afterwards or such interpretation looses value.
I Propose that if these conditions were met you have met the criterion for Empirical evidence for God.
As such I find that this Criterion is met in the person of Jesus who is claimed as sent from God and is claimed as one who fulfilled prophecy.
1. Jesus of Nazareth was preceded by a major Jewish Prophet known as John the Baptist (Dead Sea Scrolls: Community Rule (1QS)-Col Col IX.10ff)
2. Jesus of Nazareth was a reported prophetic figure (Deuteronomy 18:15)
3. Jesus of Nazareth was crucified in the time of Pilate between 26-36CE (Daniel 9)
4. Jesus was killed in Jerusalem (Daniel 9)
5. Jesus was killed when Israel was occupied by a foreign power. (Daniel 9)
6. Jesus was believed to be the Messiah. (Evident)
7. Jesus death is followed by the destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple for the second time. (Daniel 9)
8. Jesus was reported as raised from the dead.
9. He ministered to the poor (Damascus document 19.9-11 and the Son of God Scroll and the Messiah Apocalypse Scroll)
10. Preparation in the Wilderness by John the Baptist (Community Rule (1QS)-Col VIII, Col IX, Col IX.10ff)
In the thread I provide the verses and the Jewish interpretation sources from the Babylonian Talmud and other Rabbinical commentaries.
Then I provide the Historical verification that agrees with these events actually taking place according to the studies of modern day historians and ancient references (not the resurrection, but the claim of it).
Here's a small list of the details of the life of Jesus which are reported prophecies by Jewish non Christian interpretation and verified historically as actually happening in the life of Jesus of Nazareth by non Christian historians of our time.
