so what i’m about to tell you is gonna to bLOW yr fuckin mind

the Greeks say Zeus, the Romans say Jupiter

but it’s thesame fuckin root

Greek “z” is more like “zd”, so Zeus is basically “Zdeus”

which is basically “deus”, Latin for “god”

(it used to mean “sky” too)

and get this

"deus+pater" = sky/god+father

deuspater —> Jupiter

fUCK

YES THANK YOU IT’S THE BEST
