    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!

    Loofahs are actually harmful for you. The loofah when left in the shower with your sweat and skin gets bacteria, also the loofah rubs off natural oils in your skin giving you rashes and stuff.

                  What are the origins on the Ender dragon? You only find one in the end like it's the last of it's kind, how and what are the end chrystals? Was there other dragons before?

                    Actually muslims don't believe God live in Kaabah. Although it is of great importance in the religion, Kaabah acts as a qiblah or the direction Muslims face when praying. The kaabah is just a medium so the prayer will reach God in the sky. The same as you talking to your friend on the phone. Although it seems like you are just talking to a phone, the phone is just a medium so you can reach your friend

                                Aren't there villager priests?(I can't quite remember) What do they believe? Is it the same Minecraft god(s) that the ancient builders believed in? Maybe it's the two people talking after you defeat the enderdragon.
