Should old physics be entirely surmounted by modern physics?

Old physics are completely outdated, many philosophical hypotheses are based upon common sense. For instance, Aristotle, a philosopher, believed that objects slowed down because they became exhausted over time. This sounds absurd to a modern physicist, because at the time, they did not have the caliber of math to account for the level of physics they were dealing with. It has been now proven that objects slowed down because of many external (and internal) forces that act upon the object. Modern physics, and sciences, have the outstanding technology to back up the new theories and predictions that physicists introduce, enabling a verified, and accurate system of physics.

I believe the old law of Physics need to be reviewed to make sure they are compatible with the modern laws, I don't think you would need to replace them though.

Why would that sound absurd to a "modern" physicist? It's true, regardless of knowing the factors that cause it.

For instance, you throw a baseball. It only goes so far, because the energy put into throwing it becomes exhausted as gravity and friction, among other things, act upon the ball. Knowing the specifics of that exhaustion does not change the fact that the energy is being exhausted.

"Old" physics and "modern" physics. Ambiguity much?

Shouldn't you take the Pro position?

What do you define as old and modern?
