    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!

                        Guardians dropping crystals really doesn't make sense. Prismarine Bricks are made of Shards and not of crystals.

                                      Anyone gonna tell him? Well I guess I should, Islam did not exist while Mesopotamia was around thus making mats connection pointless. It would be like saying since the Romans owned rome, Christianity is the same as the roman religions.

                                          23 is also used in Nissan racing because in Japanese 2 is "nii" and 3 is "san" hence Nissan

THERE'S a theory for YOU and ONLY YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
