So did the civilization that became the drowned come after the civilization that became the endermen? Either way, these are some unlucky groups of people 😂

What if instead of the waters rising the land or islands they lived on were sinking? It would explain the gravel bed of the sea and also why there are still mineshafts to find underneath the seabed.

If islam is connected to the drowned lore as you said in the theory there is a story in islam about the whole world being drown but a woman saved the world by burying the source of the water I don’t know if you can connect these two together but that is valuable info 😊

interesting thought, what if there was the wither, the thing that wiped out the ancient builders, struck within the oceans, seeing the corpses of fishermen and pirates, hit them with a wither projectile, alas there was nothing that was the projectile could wither, so it only brought them back to life

I love your videos but what was the underwater monument's purpose. I'm saying this because if this is true that the underwater monument's weren't always underwater then why was it built, in another video it explained that the wither was killing a large portion of the ancient builders so they they hid in under ground mine shafts, desert temple's and underwater monument's wait if the underwater monument's weren't supposed to be underwater then what where they made for before it sunk.

I have a question? Can you do a theory on Judy Gatland? I think she committed su*cide, and a lot of evidence suggests she did (also, technically you can do a theory on her because of her documentary of part of her life called "Judy" and please do it on film theory) she had an overdose, a way to commit SUICIDE, she was depressed, she wasn't able to see her kids too.

Your greatest accomplishment was to bring arrows and some health potions to fight the Ender Dragon. It's a good theory, but I wonder what threat could be so terrible? The lore is interesting to think about how much entropy you could have if a technological civilization had been around for a hundred thousands years. We've been gathering in cities for less than 10,000 years, so maybe we'd under estimate how much can be forgotten.

There are 2 big plotholes in this theory. 1) İf the big floods took down this civilization, then why it didnt take all the other civilizations? The ancient humans, the villagers, the illagers? 2) if the ocean monuments were originally made in the surface, then why did the drowned made the guardians to protect them if the guardians only work properly in the sea? The drowned couldnt have build the guardians after their civilization sunk off because the drowned dont have the ability to pick up blocks or build. İ hope in a later video, you answer these questions.

Here's something easier. people built towns that were near the coast for farm reasons. But then all the smoke from fires that they created caused global warming, which melted the glaciers, which rose the sea level. Then a huge wave came in on the towns which destroyed the towns. Then more waves spread out some of the ruins. Then the builders went out in search of new land for a new village. Then a giant zombie attack turned them all into zombies. However, they went to the old towns to get the leftover stuff. Then thet had such heavy things on their back that they drowned, which turned them into drowns. Then one of their souls went into a ruin which turned them into the guardian. They reproduced as they got older. Then they became elder guardians because they were really old. You, who was in a coma after the zombie attack woke up, which started the game. And YOU are the only survivor

i was rewatching this for fun, but it made me think of something, in the upcoming caves and cliffs update were supposed to get the expansive caves and towering mountains right? well captain sparkles in his video reviewing the update trailer he mentions how the new cave biome that has the warden is supposed to be deeper then we've ever explored before, or at least i think that's how he worded i, well if all these things are supposed to be done in caves then 65 blocks isn't enough right? so one of 2 things come to mind, expand the build limit or Raise Sea Level, and might i also mention how in another theory mat mentions how the "Builders" might have made ender pearls and the warden and that new block looks a lot like ender pearls coloration, IS MATPAT"S HEADCANNON CORRECT?

Zephyr 22 dager siden
One thing that I find quite interesting, is how the monuments tie into the drowning of the civilization. Because they were sea faring, they must have had a sea god that they prayed too. Tying back into the last theories, maybe because these builders were toying with life and death, it angered the gods, which caused the mass flooding.
