Dogma: Definition

In Greek, dogma means some doctrine, opinion, ruling. Moreover, in the practice of modern time, in the Russian language, dogma is not just someone's subjective opinion.

Dogma can be called a certain doctrine or statement that is recognized to be immutable true, indisputable, unquestioning. Dogma is that which is recognized without proof, without any criticism, without logical proof and its own practical test. Such faith is based on blind adherence to authority or religious faith.
