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 just realised, what if, just like elder guardians, shulkers and blazes are man-made too? Shulkers look like they're made from the surrounding material, to camouflage with the structure they protect, and they can only be seen in the end cities, guarding doors, rooms, treasures, and in that one segment where there's nothing but steep edges and shulkers. Also they're attack is firing homing missiles at you that make you float, sounds like something made by an architect who really thought about the defence of a building. Plus their heads look like their made of end stone. There isn't as much I can say for the blazes except 1: they only spawn in nether fortresses from spawners that someone had to have put there. 2: They don't look like anything organic( it's a head with rods floating around it) 3: Much like the guardians and shulkers, they seem like they're only there to defend the building, and they're perfectly built for the job.

Case closed.

    Good theory also to add to it elder guardians cause you to have mining fatigue and so you can’t break blocks. That could be to prevent us from going and destroying the cube and monument

    Alright quick clear up on the Islamic parts. 23 doesn't really hold any significance in Islam and the Kabba is called the house of Allah because its a place of worship, not some special place where the earth is connected to heaven. That's why we also call mosques the houses of Allah because that's where we worship him. Spot on with everything else tho impressed with how much you researched.

    I think this could tie in with the previous builders, as they are better at crafting than steve and could easily craft a robot. Gold is probably a big part of their civilization, as Gold spawns more often in Mesa Biomes and mineshafts spawn more often in Mesa Biomes as well.

    Theory about the Minecraft backstory: I think that the timelines are -> 1. Minecraft story mode 2. Minecraft Dungeons 3. Minecraft Now this is my opinion, but I think the Minecraft backstory happened in Minecraft story mode. The world was like normal earth, all happy and stuff. One day a mob apocalypse happened and the people had to escape. Then the wither storm was spawned. (You can guess the rest if you’ve played MCSM) Then all the monsters killed the whole entire Minecraft earth, except Steve and the characters in Minecraft Dungeons. The heroes tried to fight off the mobs, but failed. Then Steve saw the apocalypse, and was knocked out by the mobs. When Steve woke up, he was in the middle of nowhere (where you spawn in a Minecraft world) and tried his best to survive, that’s why in the game you try to survive. The ender dragon had summoned the mobs to destroy earth, and nearly succeeded. The dragon waits for Steve to come, as Steve comes to fight the dragon. The dragon dies, as it lays an egg. Inside the egg is the wither storm, I guess it’s just a loop or a bunch a timelines have been messed up and crashed by the ender dragon. Now that’s just a theory.. a GAME theory.
