Argues that reliability approaches to justification are severely defective. They fail even to assert a necessary and sufficient condition for justification, much less a correct condition, if they do not identify the bearers of reliability. They fail to be credible, if they identify bearers of reliability in a way that gives the theory grossly implausible results. We examine assorted attempts to respond to this difficulty and find none with any promise of success.
