"However, at no stage has chaos theory ever proved Newton's laws of physics wrong - quite the opposite in fact."
you have no idea what you're talking about. i didn't say ALL of them, because there are loads. part of the basis of newtons laws said that complex stimuli always leads to complex effects and simple stimuli always leads to simple effects. choas theory proved that simple changes can result in complex effects. thereby disproving it. stick to what you know and shut the f up about what you don't.

Where do they do so? Please provide a source.

The laws commonly known as Newton's laws don't talk about simplicity vs. complexity at all. They are about mass and motion. And you don't need any simplicity vs. complexity arguments for them. They are knowledge "condensed" from observations how bodies behave when forces act upon them.

And these laws hold true even for chaotic processes that involve mass and motion, for example in the case of a ferromagnetic pendulum moving in a field created by three magnets placed below it.
