Aren't you being rude with gentle brother when you can't make a good rebuttal?
The reference of holy grail and Moby Dick is utter nonsense as far the subject goes!

As usual Sign Reader, you would rather resort to ad hominem attacks than address the issues.  The fact that someone is a Christian is irrelevant to his argument as is the fact that I am an agnostic.  Maybe you should address the points made instead of resorting to this blatant logical fallacy.  Also, since you don't understand my argument against the term "compatible with science" let me help you.  The holy grail reference is a metaphor and is a figure of speech in the English language.  It refers to deliberately making something appear less important than someone else has made it out to be.  Moby Dick is a book and a classic at that.  In it you can find all sorts of nautical and weather related references and references to marine life.  If I wished, I could say that Herman Melville (the author of Moby Dick) was prescient when he wrote this in the 1850s and then proceed to show how there might be deeper meaning in certain phrases.  You are correct that a better reference might have been another story written 1400 or so years ago like Homer's Iliad.  However, you are incorrect in saying the reference is utter nonsense.

Uniquepos, what an astute and well thought out analysis.  You will fit right in here.  However, perhaps you could expand your thought just a little.

Sign Reader, the Wikipedia article exists. There seems to be some problems with quotation marks in links. Search for

"Qur'an and science"

in Wikipedia and you will get there. The article begins with

The contemporary Islamic discourse on the Qur’an and science abounds with assertions of the relationship between the two. This presumed relationship is construed in a variety of ways, the most common of which are the efforts to prove the divine nature of the Qur’an through modern science.

The relevant part is this:

The search for Qur'anic references to and prophecies of modern scientific discoveries has become a "popular trend" in some Muslim societies; as a manifestation of the popularity of the scientific miracles belief, the Muslim World League at Makkah formed a committee named Committee on the Scientific Miracles of the Qur?a-n and the Sunna to investigate the relation between Qur'an and science, headed by Zaghloul El-Naggar.

According to some recent studies of the relationship between science education and religion, one of the ways in which science education in strongly Islamic societies is impacted by religiosity is when "acceptable" scientific discoveries can be found to have been anticipated or "identified" by the Qur'an, with consequent implications for what is taught and not taught.

It's just a movie. The mainstream scintists do not believe this will happen.
