The world of Minecraft is vast and pretty well explored... except for one place. You see, we've covered a LOT of Minecraft on this channel, and in doing research for all of that I've noticed that one place remains mostly undiscovered - or at least un-theorized! The underwater biome of Minecraft is FULL of weird creatures and tons of interesting lore, if you know where to look. Spoiler alert, I do! Today we are diving into old Gods, ancient ruins, and more! Get your scuba gear ready, Theorists!

Case closed.

    Good theory also to add to it elder guardians cause you to have mining fatigue and so you can’t break blocks. That could be to prevent us from going and destroying the cube and monument

    Alright quick clear up on the Islamic parts. 23 doesn't really hold any significance in Islam and the Kabba is called the house of Allah because its a place of worship, not some special place where the earth is connected to heaven. That's why we also call mosques the houses of Allah because that's where we worship him. Spot on with everything else tho impressed with how much you researched.

    I think this could tie in with the previous builders, as they are better at crafting than steve and could easily craft a robot. Gold is probably a big part of their civilization, as Gold spawns more often in Mesa Biomes and mineshafts spawn more often in Mesa Biomes as well.

    Theory about the Minecraft backstory: I think that the timelines are -> 1. Minecraft story mode 2. Minecraft Dungeons 3. Minecraft Now this is my opinion, but I think the Minecraft backstory happened in Minecraft story mode. The world was like normal earth, all happy and stuff. One day a mob apocalypse happened and the people had to escape. Then the wither storm was spawned. (You can guess the rest if you’ve played MCSM) Then all the monsters killed the whole entire Minecraft earth, except Steve and the characters in Minecraft Dungeons. The heroes tried to fight off the mobs, but failed. Then Steve saw the apocalypse, and was knocked out by the mobs. When Steve woke up, he was in the middle of nowhere (where you spawn in a Minecraft world) and tried his best to survive, that’s why in the game you try to survive. The ender dragon had summoned the mobs to destroy earth, and nearly succeeded. The dragon waits for Steve to come, as Steve comes to fight the dragon. The dragon dies, as it lays an egg. Inside the egg is the wither storm, I guess it’s just a loop or a bunch a timelines have been messed up and crashed by the ender dragon. Now that’s just a theory.. a GAME theory.

    and the monuments might have been flooded because if you look at the tutorial the old map is under ice under water when it never used to so maybe in minecrafts lore that has something to do with it because mat pat doesnt mension the tutorials but honestly it might have something to do with that becuase the look abandoned but look like the onece had importance towers broken and the tutorials are getting bigger so are they showing a story of what happened and why yo only see minor things in minecraft and not many things showing past and what if when mincraft updated the colonies or what ever had built them if there was colonies discovered new things and so they make their empire bigger allong with the stuggle of them being flooded and how there are creatures made of stone around the world in tutorial maybe to show what they discovered and how there was an old miners house where you start off well who ar what was it for maybe thats showing that there was reasons to mine and the wither may have destroyed villages so they went to the end to find a new place to build because there old homes were getting destroyed with only minor building left because if it was too big it would attract the wither
