During long centuries, many philosophers have accepted strong foundationalism and have used it in their reasoning. But some contemporary philosophers like Alvin Plantnga have suggested a new theory called reformed epistemology. According to this theory, the basic propositions are not limited to number of propositions which are accepted by strong foundationalism, but rather there are many other basic propositions including the belief in God. So the result is that according to this theory, there is no need to reasoning for the existence of God and this belief is the basic belief. Alvin Plantinga refuted the strong foundationalim by three reasons. In this paper these reasons have been analyzed and criticized. And then five reasons to refute the theory of reformed epistemology have been explained. Plantinga himself have faced some of these reasons and have tried to reply them, but in this paper his reasons have been refuted and finally the theory of reformed epistemology has been rejected.
