yahweh == jupiter

This is an interesting discovery. It is not about the Tetragram. (In fact, it is consistent with yahweh being a modern corruption error.)
This is not etymology. This is not cognate language theory.

We are talking simple vocalization and some Latin basics.

Jupiter is Jove-pater .. father Jove

Jove (or Iove) is pronounced yahweh .. or at most a vocal range from yowe to yahweh

If you accept that a spiritual entity is invoked or sought by calling upon its name, then those who are calling upon yahweh are calling upon jupiter.
A devil entity that has a long history as the opponent of Hebraic and Christian faith.

Acts 14:12
And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius,
because he was the chief speaker.

Acts 14:13
Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city,
brought oxen and garlands unto the gates,
and would have done sacrifice with the people.

Acts 19:35
And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said,
Ye men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana,
and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?

This has been pointed out by a number of individuals over the last couple of decades. Recently it got an extra push when the
karaite Nehemia Gordon, with a solid Hebraist background, asked to those who think the Tetragram is yahweh:

"Have you been praying to Jupiter?"

In fact, historically, the easy vocal connection of Yahweh to the pagan Jove (Jupiter) appears to actually have been a spur to the liberal German support for the Yahweh/Yahveh attempt. The unbelieving scholars simply tend to see the Hebrews as warmed-over pagans.

Here is a very relevant extract from Gesenius, with parentheses notes from Samuel Prideaux Tregelles.

The text is here
GESENIUS ON THE NAME JEHOVAH
[Extracted from Gesenius's Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament Scriptures, 1846, pp. CCCXXXVII-VIII.
The interpolations by the translator/editor Samuel Prideaux Tregelles have been given in red.]

"Gesenius derives the name of Ihuh from a root huh, which root does not exist in Hebrew."—Gerald Massey

"To give my own opinion, I suppose this word to be one of the most remote antiquity, perhaps of the same origin as Jovis, Jupiter, and transferred from the Egyptians to the Hebrews"
