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!

    I was just waiting and waiting for you to mention how elder guardians giving you mining fatigue is to stop you from mining the gold. then you didn't.

    What is the elder guardian is half fish, I mean it is a different color and it drops fish so maybe it is a syborg that a creator made but then didn't like it so he put it in the temple, that is why it is grey and then for years to come he made the guardians the new fully robotic fish

  • Waluigi

    Hey matpat, just wanted to say that I really appreciate how you took time to learn about Islam and include it respectfully in the video as part of the theory, it made a lot of sense and was fun to think about. Keep up with the good work :)

    Guys MatPat needs help, he spends like 15 minutes building up a theory and in the last like 5 seconds he just demotes everything he just said to "just a theory". Poor man has self confidence problems.

    3 Things: 1- The number 23 isn't really that important in Islam, sure the Quran took 23 years but really give me any number and religion and i might give you something similar. also It is actually not definite that it was day 23 when Quran was reveled to prophet Muhammad, most people think it was day 27. ot any day between 20 and 30 2- While it is true that Kaaba is the house of God (and so is every Mosque) it is just metaphorical. It is not like we beleive God is inside it or live in it. 3- Mesopotamian civilisation is way cooler than the Egyptian and Greek ones -_-
