Reification: attributing a concrete characteristic to something that is abstract.
I see evolutionists committing the fallacy of reification all the time. It's mostly something like: "Evolution made apes into humans." or "For jaguars, it was beneficial for it to evolve larger jaws for it to eat reptiles." or "This bacterium decided that it would be beneficial for it to join in with a nuclear envelope." or "This fossil says that this transitional link proves the evolution between these two species." or "This selective pressure wanted this species to evolve."
Could this fallacy be one of the reasons that evolution is convincing to many people? Obviously, there are other major factors, but couldn't this factor play a role in convincing people in believing evolution?
