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 first verses didn’t revealed to the prophet Muhammad in 23th of Ramadan but it was on the last 10 days of Ramadan for sure and that night we call it fate night so ocean monument isn’t related to the Islamic faith but it might be related to the Mesopotamia civilization and and ancient Egypt civilization.

Me watching it and being a Muslim at the same time do feel offended. I still like MatPat and enjoy his videos a lot but giving Islamic references and comparing them with games is disrespectful and hence I would recommend you not doing that ever again because there are millions of Muslims out there who are offended by this. Other wise you are awesome but pls, it’s a request, pls don’t do that ever again

Wait you know the ship wrecks and the sea ruins that were recently added to Minecraft in 1.13. They have often broken and mossy blocks why don’t of the sea temple have them yes there is no mossy variant of prismarine. but look at the ship wrecks even they have seaweed and kelp on them and broken blocks on and in them the sea temples have none of that. Yes stone is harder for plants to from but look at the sea ruins they still have kelp and seaweed on them and their made of stone. If the sea temples aren’t filled with greenary and no broken blocks then how come the other structures in the sea do?
4:36 Maybe they are amphibians(Sorry for wrong spelling)
My theory is that elder guardians and guardians eat prismarine structures so they just made the ocean monument as a food source.The drowned also helped them by gathering prismarine but on a deal=They should put the gold inside the structures/food sources and the drowned could get them anytime they want to(Drownedndropped gold ingots sometimes)

You're stretching a ton for this. Everything here is kinda vaguely connected, but if you take a step back, it's all very clearly coincidence. Confirmation bias makes it very easy to accept, but this theory really doesn't hold water at all.

So if they drop fish sometimes what if they are just fish that ate prismirine crystals and transformed into Guardians?

out of topic but when matpat showed the photos of Kaabah, I can't help but miss the place and have a rush of nostalgia. Just went there last year, right before disaster (aka miss rona) strikes.

When he broke out the Kaaba 🕋 (it has an emoji for that?!) I smirked, because I just finished studying Islamic faith for Spanish class. I’ll... probably forget... Because I’m not Islamic and I don’t really care... But it’s a fun fact 🙃
