The Credibility of "Credibility"

It is widely agreed that "phlogiston", "caloric" and "vital" as used in "vital force" are not useful words.  What would it take for very serious people to stop taking "credibility" seriously ?

It seems to me that the word "credibility" is the last resort of those whose arguments have no support from evidence or  credible theory.
