Some information that is relayed to the public can seem so inconceivable; counties fighting over oil, medical unknowns, adultery, divorce, politics, and death. Like those listed, philosophy and religion are no exceptions to the rule. If a thought or a point of view is said to be so unbelievable, there should be nothing that can change someone else's view on the subject. However, it takes only a single doubt to make a nonbeliever into one that believes in possibility. One way to provide a nonbeliever with an ounce of doubt is to provide a persuasive and compelling argument for their cause or view. Two philosophers, one Eastern and one Western have stated and successfully given their arguments. They have provided scholars with some very persuasive and compelling information.

Buddha was a philosopher from the Eastern culture. He has been referred to as ?The Enlightened One,? for his doctrine that he developed. In his late twenties, Buddha abandoned his wife, son, and a life a luxury to travel and find an understanding. He was agonized by all the suffering and pain he saw around him. So he mediated, he traveled, eventually after six years following his lifestyle change, he found the clarification he sought out. He developed a doctrine which is called the ?Four Noble Truths.? ?[T]he Four Noble Truths [include] (1)There is suffering; (2) suffering has specific and identifiable causes; (3) suffering can be ended; (4) the way to end suffering is through enlightened living.?
