One Answer

  1. First, the inconsistency of theories in physics is a bit of an exaggeration.

    Secondly, physics (and science in general) cannot be judged by the sound of terms, “linguistics”. The term has a specific definition. In particular, an inertial frame of reference is one in which the laws of Newtonian mechanics are fulfilled (for small velocities).

    Yes, this is an abstraction, a way of describing it. No deep conclusions should be drawn from the consonance with the word “inertia”. And you will not find the concept of “inertia” in modern physics.
