I really can't see science as the anti-Christ mainly because its the best way we have of looking at the world. Science isn't anti-Christ or anti-religion, it makes no judgments of religious belief though it has helped give us naturalistic explanations for phenomenon once thought supernatural (lightning and illness for instance).
I'm not a big fan of the anti-Christ narrative mainly because Christians tend to take versus scattered all over the Bible, tear them out of any context they are in and use them to prop up their interpretation of the end time narrative. This is the same thing we see with messianic prophecies themselves.
I do think there are plenty of hardcore fundamentalists who hate science, for reasons I don't quite understand, but I'm not sure any would embrace the idea of it being the anti-christ.
People are starting to worship sceince as a religion in a sense.
Take the scientific census for example. A bunch of people agree even though there is no 100% proof so it must be right.
But in the sense that they tend to not question science consensus.
Those that are religious to the core and tend to believe the world is only 2,000 years old and what not.
And scientific atheists that are douchebags that think they and there vaunted science is superior to religion and 'creationism'.
You can believe in science.....but there is a difference between believing in science and being into scientism.

I'm saying that, without Science and the Industrial Revolution (Parts I & II), the Earth's total human population would probably still be a few hundred million, the air would be clean, the water pure, natural resources would be abundant for our smaller population, humanity would be stronger as a species, and the various other species that have gone extinct in the last 100 years would still be here.
rather than teetering on the brink of self-annihilation every day, as we're doing now.
