It's not a matter of proving the Quran from science. It's the other way round.
The example of the star and the number of letters etc is not evidence, no one has claimed it to be. Evidence and proof is to be taken seriously in matters that are explicit, like the "Alaq" etc etc. Had the verse been explicit, and science said the verse was wrong in it's measurements, then we would discard science and know that it has erred.
Similarly, one cannot use Surah Al-Qadr, and count it's verses/letters, as has been done, to confirm that the Night of Qadr IS on the 27th, because this knowledge, although may end up being correct, it is not explicit. And Allah knows best.

Actions are judged by intentions, so each man will have what he intended. ابو محمد
We need to dig into the psychology behind the need to do such a thing. On the one hand, we humans, even Muslims consider science to be one of the ultimate means of success in this world, and on the other hand, the Muslims know that real success lies in the teachings of Quran and Sunnah. So ultimately we try to reconcile the two somehow in order to convince others and ourselves that Islam is the key to success in both this world and the hereafter.
It's a nice thought but unfortunately in today's times it is driven by the Muslims' desire to be accepted by the kuffar. We derive our satisfaction by the opinions of the kuffar.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
