    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!

    The funny thing is that this theory is really good but the creator of mc (Notch) made this sea temple update before he handed it over to Microsoft. Notch is openly atheist..

    I think the monument's were originally above the water and the drowned were originally human and they were the people who built the monument's however something happened causing the monument to sink or the water level rose for some reason maybe connected to why the humans who became the enderman escaped to the end I think some big event happened and the monument's sunk and the human's inside drowned and became the drowned

    I don't know if it matters that much but at the end of the game when these two people are talking they call the player by "it" instead of "they", so my thought about this is that since they're gods we aren't important to them because they're technically call us an object (since "it" goes with non-living things, and animals but I guess it's still the same (?) )
    I just think they call the player like that because they're at a biggest level than us, a much, much bigger level
    (Sorry if there's any grammar mistakes)

    Well, you are able and allowed to hit women in Minecraft, in PVE even encouraged. So, maybe Minecraft does have Islamic influence...

    We can also notice that the guardians do not attack us when we are in creative so it must mean that we are priests during creative so they do not attack us so it mist be a place of religion as Matt suggested!

    Hold on here, some of the points he makes are a bit weak, especially the point with the elder guardian seeking thermal signatures. After the video was made, it was shown as a bug and was fixed. However, thermal imagers watch your infrared image (thermal radiation), which is similar from an outsiders perspective to something you see. Some animals can see your thermal signature, so I think this point is quite weak.

    What if Minecraft Steve, is the Wither. It sounds unlikely, but do you even see a wither in the overworld? My Suggestion is the Wither eventually turned into you. It is not like other withers. Infact it is even possible it was a Wither Storm. Seeming as in desert temples they had pictures of a wither, reminding them of what to craft to use against the Witherstorm should it head towards them.

      But it did not work, the Wither storm killed off the Withers faster then they could craft them. By the time the Wither Storm finally cools down into a player, there is no builders in sight.
