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!

  • Btw I don’t know why only creepers can’t see you when you use a invisibility position for some reason every other mob sees you when you use a invisibility position I know it’s a stupid feature but hey mojang wont fix it tho they only care about the most important glitches that make the game bad and all they care about is fixing them tho.

  • Weird coincidence (11:40 ?) My name is Mia. M=13 I=9 A=1 13+9+1=23 And usually for some reason, name wise at least in most cases, I associate with the number 2 or 3. If you use my first and last initial (2 things, both associate with 3) it does a thingy. Mia has 3 letters, last initial is C which is three, 2 sets of 3. I know this is probably dumb and it’s weird manipulation of numbers but ha know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It’d be funny if I was born on the 23rd but nah, close though

  • Hey game theory so my theory is that the drowns are the ones who refused to go to the end the ones who thought that it was a bad idea so they lived there collecting Nautilus shells under water and breeding turtles to get scutes and craft them in to helmets that they enchanted to breath under water but some forgot to enchant their helmets soon they died but the hearts of the sea was some how able to revive them
