Incredible or Incredulous?

Ever wondered what’s the difference between these 2 words, incredible and incredulous? (and yes, there’s a difference!)

Well, incredible refers to a situation that is beyond belief or understanding, whereas incredulous refers to someone not being willing to belief.

Incredible reflects more on the unbelievable situation, while incredulous reflects more on the unbelieving person rather than the situation.

Check out our Spelling Book for more Confusing Words and be confused no more.

So, would you call this situation incredible or incredulous?

The picture was taken after the collapse of a shark tank at The Scientific Center in Kuwait. Share this because it’s probably the only time in your life you will see something as *incredible/incredulous as this.

*Delete accordingly. =p

Have a great weekend, everyone!

      Yes, Eva. This is the section. I inentd Mr Grammar Man to grow into a manual of both grammar and of use. I mean, both words and expressions.Now. Your question. The answer is I don’t know. The sentence you have shown is peculiar. Does it come from a song? Lots of peculiar English happens in songs.To make your stand or to make a stand implies Here is where I stand (and fight if I have to).

    This photo is of a flood that happened in an underground shopping concourse just outside of Union Station, Toronto, Canada. The water is about 2 inches deep. The sharks are Photoshopped. I know because I walk through that area frequently.
