A principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true, without question or doubt.

It is a term derived from the Greek dogma (Greek: δόγμα) meaning literally “that which one thinks is true”

The term dogma has been used by some theistic religious groups to describe the body of positions forming the group’s most central or essential beliefs.

Dogma is the word used for dualistic (right/wrong) thinking, and can be attributed as the source of division and conflict in many religions.
