Well, I am sorry but this is incorrect (that new theories "throw away" old ones. Say, the Earth is still flat if you take small area of it, spacetime is still rather Euclidian in small volume (Solar system), Newton's laws are still there being highly accurate at small velocities, etc etc. This is the essence of a science: we make theories more amd more accurate by observing facts in broader and broader range. And, as you may notice indeed, since Pithagorean time it was found that the Universe is pure mathematical. Actually even way before that. And the reason that Universe strictly obeys mathematical equations (Newton, Einstein, Maxwell, Shroedinger) without single exeption is simple fact that math originates from exactly the same fundamental principle the Universe strictly obeys: any object/phenomena in it can either exist (we agreed to call it 1 in math) or not exist (we call it 0) but not both. Algebra follows from arithmetic, calculus from algebra, differential/integral equations from calculus. So all equations of physics are actually mathematical identities of the fact that nothing in the Universe can be in the state of existence AND inexistence at the same time.
