From Standard Model to True Theory

The ICHEP Conference has shown: the Standard Model is correct. We should rename it the "True Theory".

Stop - you will say. It is well-known that the standard model "cannot be correct". Thousands of papers and presentations start in this way.

Cannot be correct? In the past years, I have tried to collect ALL the arguments at the origin of this statement. For example, that the standard model obviously is an effective theory, that its results cannot be true up to Planck energy, that supersymmetry must hold, that scientists have again and again believed to have found a true theory, that gravity must have an influence before the Planck scale, and so forth.

Listen, men, every one of those arguments does not hold water! The Standard Model is the "True Theory". Not only for all practical purposes, but really.
