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!

That is intact incorrect , Mesopotamia expanded in south-east Persian (or Elam ) way before they ever reached Syria and by that point all they had was a little bit

Hey matpat. I am just going to give some advice. Not every muslim is going to like that you link Islam to a game. But I didn't take it too personal So I don't think other Muslim will too. And that's it I hope you and your channel can withstand some critiszim from the islamic community and I hope you have a great day

Most Minecraft players: yes, an ocean monument! I can make a farm out of this! MatPat: yes, an ocean monument! I can make a theory out of this! History of the world, I guess: yes, an ocean monument! You could make a religion out of this!

Just a theory, may or may not be true. But the thing is... if its just a theory why does everything about the theory line up to what youre theorizing about? Like the theory about how the Minecraft world is post apocalyptic, and everything adds up to that being true. Theories on this channel always line up to the real-life counterpart, and evidence, yet they're just theories and have yet to be proven... But they line up so perfectly, it seems all of it is true or should be true...

Aren’t there living creatures that see in the thermal spectrum? Maybe the guardians are a successful test of genetic engineering, being engineered to protect their homes. Considering that the ancient builders have mastered magic and attempted resurrection, the idea of them mastering genetic engineering isn’t that far off.

- How will we reward the players who cleared the ocean monument? - I don't know, put some gold blocks in the middle somewhere. They could use it to make like 9 gapples.

I wonder if when those people posed for the pictures they knew that they would be used in practically every video of matpats and become famous XD

You know, I'm pretty sure the guardians skin texture is because the prismarine wipes off on there skin since there underwater

antidisestablishmentarianism is a word that means against wanting to remove Catholicism as the state religion of England. I know because my mom always said that word was the longest one she ever knew and therefore I quickly learned the meaning of it. Also, I'm Catholic so lol. What that word has to do with this video...i do not know
