SUBSCRIBE to never miss a Theory! ►
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!

  • Err, Matt. Could we talk about those fossil structures? Nobody has ever discussed the mysteries, the possibilities and the theories about what these ancient animals are, where did they come from, and how did these prehistoric beasts became extinct?

  • wait so a zombie can turn a villager into a zombie villager and i think both when they die under water they both can become water zombies so does that mean until they water zombie villagers become a thing that some one point in time water zombies were villagers

  • In real life Lung Fish can live on land and can still breath without suffocating and amphibians are an actual thing IRL. But I agree Matt someone had to create the Mineshafts and Strongholds and so Steve could be like the Fallout character, hes just waking up from a Coma while the rest of society has fallen and nature has reclaimed the planet. Matt on a side note I think your 100% right about the religious factor. After watching your video I realized if the temples are under water... could that mean the Great Flood happened? Like the biblical flood that all three dominate modern religions have in their holy books? Perhaps ancient Steve's angered the gods and so they flooded the planet? Or Perhaps the gods started over and created a new Adam, male OC and Eve Female OC.
