Scripture is any body of writing which defines the fundamental beliefs of a religion – i.e. whose assertions are believed to be essentially true simply because they are part of that body, rather than because of any corroborating evidence.
- Fundamentalism is the belief that the truth of a particular work of scripture is literal rather than metaphorical.
- Rationalism holds scriptural assertions to the same standards of criticism as any other assertions. A rational belief system has no scripture.
- Doctrine refers to a collection of "teachings" (typically beliefs and practices) held by any organization (not necessarily religious in nature)
- Dogma refers to any set of beliefs which are held to be indisputable and not subject to interpretation.
- Conservapedia: redirects to "Bible", which is apparently the only scripture they recognize
