Text: With this technique the meaniing of a key word or term in an argument shifts during the course of the argument. As a result, the conclusion has nothing to do with the premise. For example, "No one who knows science can reasonably doubt that the miracles in the Bible actually took place. Every year we witness countless new miracles in the form recombinant DNA, micro-chips, organ transplants, etc." Note that the word "miracle" does not have the same meaning in each case.
