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!

    On the thumbnail it has a picture of a drowned and says the drowned gods. That leaves me to believe there was some sort of disaster in a community of underwater gods. It might have something to do with destructive humans as they’re hostile to players. Some drowned are spawned with a trident which I’m pretty sure is the same weapon used by the water god Poseidon.

    Don’t you mean, 13 minutes? You said 18 minutes. I guess, it doesn’t matter, to you. Good video anyway. Just try to keep your head on your shoulders. Greatest advice, since you don’t care. To be honest: Just having somewhat of a bad day. I apologize.

    There’s a 1 in a million chance to generate a world that has a pre-lit End Portal as I think that might connect to your previous theories.

    Dunno. Everything about this is "some religion has a somewhat likewise thing", with several religions. With very shady comparisons. Let's take the Kaaba. It is a unique building - there is only one Kabaa. Meanwhile, there are several ocean monuments. The Kaaba has an inside, the treasure room box hasn't. The Kaaba has inscriptions and that stone the pilgrims want to touch, the treasure room looks like every other room. The one thing it has in common with the Kaaba is that it is a cube. With that logic, I could argue that it is clearly an electric maintenance building, as those also come in cubes. So what you have is vague resemblance to ziggurats. Well, it also vaguely resembles completely different stuff. What we don't have is direct evidence. If there was something that looks as something universal as an altar room, kay, but there isn't anything like that. That said. In the moment you brought up the gold in the video, I had a totally different thought than "religious building". I had in mind that you just showed us the picture of the Guardian in that book. A Guardian is made out of prismarine on the outside, and what seems to be technology on the inside - so, *metal*. Meanwhile, the treasure room has something made out of prismarine on the outside and metal on the inside. That was my connection, which I wrongfully thought that you expected me to make. Now digest that. A giant guardian-like thing. Bigger than an Elder Guardian. My thought was "super weapon". Either that the "treasure room" houses something like an unfinished or unawoken Super Guardian doom robot, or that the construction is the heart of something like a Death Star laser which the monument can fire from that frame on the top of it. I like my idea better, even though I see neither yours nor mine to be really backed up by anything.

    You guys should do a theory on the movie Polar Express! Maybe theory on the ghost- mostly because I’ve always wondered about it.🤔 or maybe why the time never changes.
