The Empiricist Claim

Last night, I was fortunate to lead the discussion.
I had tried to tackle the question, why we are the Austrian Knights and not the Smithian Souls.

The debate Austrians find themselves with mainstream economists is not over economics persay but a philosophical debate.

I am curious if when reading blog posts such as this one that claim Austrians don't like empirical data, do you get the same sense as I do? That this is not a debate over economics but of a philosophical nature that has long been in discussions.
Found an easy to follow Philosophy Forum on Kant vs Hume.

How can we best argue in this debate?
