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'm a muslim and also a loyal theorist, and this is not the first time mat uses an Islamic reference, but this time while Quran was revealed in 23 years, we are not certain that it all started in 23rd , but in and 20th odd night in Ramadan month so yes it might be 23rd night but it can also be any other night

    Dear MatPat, I was hoping if you could do a theory on undertale again? It’s ok if you want to but I’ve always wondered how did Frisk or Chara survive the long fall into the underground, I would love to do one theory of my own but I don’t know how to make a theory cause I’m not really good at math or science so I was hoping you could do this theory? It’s ok if you don’t wanna..

    ok so Matpat first: the Kaaba has no gold in it second: the reason it is dark is because of the human sins over the years, it is said that it absorbs the sins of people and become darker. third: the reason why it is sacred is that in the Coran, it was created by someone who was one of the prophets in the religion and the one who opened the source of water close to the Kaaba that is called maa zamzam

    When matpat called out my religion i got shocked i did not expect that, usually people outside of my religion usually go for the torah and the bible without a thought of what the quran has to say even though its the final revalation of the 3. To be honest i was worried he might sah something bad but im happy he didnt. I also want to point out we do not pray to the kaaba and God does not live inside it, rather God is above his throne and above the entire universe and the heavens and the reason why we pray to it is because God commanded us to as a form of a single point of unity, but if you dont know your direction, praying any way is fine, he earth itself is sacred.😊

    minecraft does not have lore. It really is just coincidence sprinkled in with inspiration of real life things.
