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!

    antidisestablishmentarianism is a word that means against wanting to remove Catholicism as the state religion of England. I know because my mom always said that word was the longest one she ever knew and therefore I quickly learned the meaning of it. Also, I'm Catholic so lol. What that word has to do with this video...i do not know

    Hey i have a "Game Theory": What if when the builders all went missing/died, and became the Drowned, Endermen, Husks, and Wither Skeletons, thousands of minecraft years later, because in minecraft time goes by much faster, when you; Steve, are now in the world, you recreate the world around you as you see fit, because you are related to the builders. Although after some time, because you are not immortal, you die. But there were still other descendants on other islands in the minecraft world that you didn't know about, and some time after you die those other descendants of the builders, your unknown relatives, come together to form; Minecraft Servers, a collection of intelligent individuals, creating a new society of "Builders"

    they were made by the villagers! the villagers made both the ocean monuments, and the end cities! have you ever noticed that the villagers are the only creatures that naturally have living beings made of blocks? they made the guardians and the shulkers to defend their temples and trade outposts from pigmen who were raiding, so they were sent info the nether and infected with a virus. all of this theory comes from another youtuber but I forget his name.
