The root word for incredulous I think is incredible.

A good word to use in place of incredulous is skeptical.

The origin is in the Latin word 'incredulus', an adjective descibing a person who cannot believe something. A related word is 'incredible' from the Latin 'incredibilis' meaning that which cannot be believed.

INCREDULOUS used as an adjective is very rare.
