Logical Fallacy #1:

“Reification is attributing a concrete characteristic to something that is abstract. Perhaps you have heard the old saying, ‘it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.’ This is an example of reification because ‘nature’ is an abstraction; it is simply the name we give to the chain of events in the universe.”
— Dr. Jason Lisle, Discerning Truth
