Physical law has never been absolute, immutable fact. It's things in the 
universe that are accepted to be true based on empirical analysis. 
Understanding physical law is the purpose of science. Yes, this means 
rewriting parts of it when relevant discoveries are made. This doesn't 
invalidate science; it defines science.
