no such a dogma to me. First thing Buddha "said": do not take anything for granted until you experience it yourself. Dogmas are taken out of faith.

a friend of mine asked me whether the Buddha's enlightenment should be seen
as a Buddhist dogma. As I'm not a specialist in this area, or any other for
that matter, I promised to ask for an academic opinion. Also, what 'proof',
excepting the his own testimony, is there for Siddharta Gautama to have
attained enlightenment.
