No, there's a huge difference. Repeatable observation and experimentation. Someone observed something, identified it and wrote it down. I can repeat their experiment and observe the results for myself, and compare my results to that other someone's results. Then this process can be repeated by hundreds or thousands of other people, to provide however many additional observations we need until we're certain that the observable outcome is consistent.
Nobody else in history has repeated the observation of a supernatural being talking by means of a burning bush. Or observing anyone building a big boat and loading it up with 2 of every creature in the world. And so on and so on....
