All praise the Flying Spaghetti Monster, in His infinite Savor. RAmen
I think you may have something here. It seems clear that the word "Amen" is simply a corruption of the Holy word "RAmen"/"Ramen," which I believe means "It shall be eaten" or "So eat it."
The ancient Egyptians may have misunderstood the beginning of the Holy word (RA/Ra) as the name of a god. Another important Egyptian god's name used the second half of the Holy word: Amon (also spelled Amen) . This explanation makes sense, that a combination of Ra and men refers to our Creator and humanity.
Of course it is possible that in prehistoric times, RA or RAmen may have been the original name for our Creator, The Flying Spaghetti Monster. This would explain how Ramen noodles received their Holy name.
Sauce be with you.
