I mean you would like to say it is empirical, but Hume was the one who showed that all one ever has is an association through sequence of events, which is not the same as causality. In short, correlation is not causation. Causation comes from a metaphysical argument to be established as a principle.
Now causality may be able to be falsified under certain metaphysical assumptions by empirical data in the context of an experiment but quantum mechanics experiments, like the delayed choice quantum eraser have done as such.
My determined universe has been constructed on accepted observations of an understandable nature. The quantum indeterminate universe has been constructed on observations of a concept. If you do not understand the nature of an electron how can you trust the observations? The concept of an electron could be false.
