Just because a language is old, it doesn't mean that it can't do the things that you need it to do.Actually, yes, it does.
No, those reasons are useful for specific cases, obviously you tailor your program to your language or chose a language that suits your program.
Otherwise I could use your argument to say that everyone should program in Haskell, in it you can generate an infinite list of prime numbers in a two lines, is far more efficient of a programming language and is so incredibly well typed.
If you want to write AS3 that's fine, just be aware of the much additional functionality added by Haskell.
