Science is a method, not an entity. It's a way to look at the world and a way to answer questions. To quote Carl Sagan, "Science delivers the goods". People are accountable for the way science is used--specifically, scientists.

These people feel jilted and angry and want to hold something, somebody, accountable; so they blame science. I have a distinct feeling that none of them could tell you how the scientific method actually works, or any contemporary scientific discoveries. They despise science because they don't understand it.

That or they're just morons.
