A friend privately challenged me:
But what flavor spaghetti sauce will be the holy water of this religion? I
can foresee endless wars with this religious concept between the marinarian
sect, alfredian sect, meatsaucian, and bolonessian sects. And even more
worrisome are the potential plain wheat, whole wheat, Jerusalem artichoke,
spinach, angel hair, and fettuccini sub-sects arguing that each is the
"chosen" spaghetti noodle. I don't know Dag Gum, you may have just started
These will be called the spaghetti wars.

If you lived in the darkened times (no science) of disease and famine, ate bad mushrooms (manna), moldy bread (ergot) like they had to or starve, washed it all down with wine all the while having no medical data that there were such things as hallucinogens, you'd have come up with your own entertaining religion and wouldn't have to piggyback upon the religions of the legions of the stoned who came before you. Their fables were simply and only based upon dreams and some written second hand hundreds of years later. I thought I'd need to invent my own imaginary beings to look over me until I found Spaghettianity. The problem with the pre-Spaghettianity religions is you have to abandon the truth of your own spirituallity, assign an imaginary superhero as the medium that you need to bargain with in order to be given back your own spiritual identity. But you've only bartered back what was already yours - you! But it won't be the real you, it will be a tainted, conditional you. Wake up and smell the spaghetti!
