Science was once perceived as Evil by the Church - History
Back in ancient times the Roman Catholic Church, and early eastern European divisions of Christianity, had made an all out war against that of any attempt to prove, that there was another way of explaining how the universe came into being.
This situation of an intense human conditioned ordeal of church vs free will, was eventually lead by the protestant reformation, and the split between that of the western original form of Christianity. (during the mid 16th century) according to wikipedia.
Long before the subject of science ever got its actual defining victorious acclaim, name and definition, there were differing groups of people, who had to work their own thoughts up, mostly in hiding, and under heavy scrutiny in many European countries, due to the fact that there was much opposition, against self discovery back then.
The popular belief system of that time was Christianity, which appeared to wage war upon any who went against the likes of the church in differing ways throughout history. This all out battle between scientific findings & religious belief lasted until the age of reason, and enlightenment when science became accepted worldwide. (beginning towards the end of the 17th century - 18th century)
Well known titles such as Alchemist, Wizardry, Sorcery, Witch Craft and that of the Occult was very commonly used terms during the Dark Ages and many 1000's of years ago. (between the 5th to 15th centuries AD) These titles were used to label those people who went in their own self made directions in life, and mostly that of experimental, mystics, and the shaman types.
For those groups of people who've strayed away from the actual faith practices of the church, and were one time or another condemned for their differing personal beliefs & practices in which they chose to partake in, they were also given the label of the evil doer, who was said to have bad intentions altogether by religious leaders of that age in time.
This was generally done by the religious leaders of such faiths, who were opposed to human self expression of curiosity, scientific observations of any kind, and many people back than were actually captured, and burned at the stake during what they once called witch trials or after witch hunts (lasting the period of time of 1480 to 1750), & I wrote about such in a hub called "Jesus sacrificed himself for all humanity to rid us of sin & prepare us for Heaven".
Stand for what you believe in
Only the righteous know
Unrighteous acts were all done in the name of their God at the time and so it was perceived by others as being justifiable, and was done to create an awareness and resistance to any temptation to defy their belief by others trying to follow suit. This defensive stance on their part was a form of protection from losing their religious faith entirely, but today is seen as an act of desperation & faulty thinking.
The many scientific counter claims through out the years, opposing such religious claims as the world being flat, was done by thinking out, by providing analytical and real experimental data collections, that finally revealed the truth behind such false biblical claims of ancient times.
This was done countless times throughout history by many scientist, by stating such facts as the world being round & also the the sun being the center of our universe (rather than the earth, as the old testament stated), scientific minds behind such proof were Copernicus, Galileo, and even the claims of Sir Isacc Newton with his bold claims, of gravity being the cause for the constellations pulling towards one another (gravitational pull & the theory of relative motion), such as the earth, moon and the sun's relative relations to one another. Many of their scientific works were originally censored by the churches monarchy & leaders, until many years later after their deaths, and was reprinted in their credit for scientific discoveries. Newton was in support of the church with his own Christian faith, by stating gravity was Gods creation in his works.

Deductive Reasoning of world leaders placing the Evil blame
The reason for such upheavals caused in recent times such as the war on Iraq & many countless others, were due to the fact that humans will always be curious, and will tend to defy what's been somewhat force feed to them, and therefore we use our free will to think freely at times leading many of us in our own directions, and by experimentation with our human nature as well as that of the elements outside of us, the creatures, and all non-living things for that matter.
Faulty intelligence (finger pointing) always seems to be the leading cause of any forms of misdirection, whether it be intentional to justify any preconceived notions of a depicted justifiable act of any kind, or by rare chanced occasion. Inevitably the outcome of such an action taken, is seen as a necessary evil in any event, by the vast majority of the masses of people worldwide, or at least that's the major consensus being projected upon that of the ruled masses of people, by their current day rulers or world leaders (Example: Iraq War initiated by George W. Bush).
Now the guilty by association theme has also been used, to place faulty blame on an entire group of people who may have all been innocent, because there's truly not enough evidence in all cases to identify who's the evil doer, unfortunately for them a guilty verdict has been the case either way.
World Leaders have major influence on what or whom the masses percieves to be Evil
You can't blame people for being what god created us to be, and that is, some pretty highly active, investigative creatures on the planet earth, whom dare to try almost anything to prove our existence on the globe, while also striving to out prove one another, and so assuming that we're the most important beings of all other creations, as well. (Evil - is of a natural human condition) also stated somewhere in wikipedia.
Many scientist have felt this way, worldly philosophers, politicians, many atheist scholars, and many even religious people also feel, that god made us somehow superior to all of creation as well. This is where the whole good vs evil concept comes into play, and where science has made an attempt to disprove religion, and vice versa, in proving what is or what isn't the known actuality within our many differing views of reality.
