    Ok so I have a theory. What if the drowned attack turtles to get their cells. Think about it. You can make a helmet with turtle cells that makes you breath underwater. What if the drowned are trying to attack turtles in irder to survive. Years have passed and it became a habbit

    I have an idea to complete yours, i think that the drown society was inspiered by vikings and here is why, well first you said the raided villages, they were religious and were a sea based society and at the the end about the achievement, it talk about a wave that is in norway where the viking lived. Of course there are some differences it is Minecraft after all but still i hope that at least you can see the resemblance and hopefully think that the other civilizations could be insired from reality and maybe make a video about it. Like to make him read it pls!!!

    The thing about zombies turning into drowned when they're in water still bothers me. That's too _oddly specific_ (see what I did, there?) to just be a gameplay element. I mean, there's really no reason for that from a gameplay perspective; you could just have drowned spawn in the water, and zombies on land. Done and done. The fact that they're interchangeable tells me two things; 1) They're the same species (somewhat obvious, considering they're both supposed to be undead humans, but it's worth mentioning) 2) Both types of zombies are being inflicted with the same curse (or disease), that simply changes based on the environment. This doesn't change a whole lot about the theory, really. The zombies are the remnants of an ancient Builder race (same body type & clothing as the Builder player-character), which was wide-spread enough to reach all the way from the desert (husks, desert temples), to the jungles (jungle temples, evidence of ocelot domestication in villages), to the seaside (this theory). These beings were of multiple, possible warring cultures, rather than a unified whole, and the Drowned society was akin to a Nordic viking tribe; fishing, sailing, and pillaging as they go. The main thing this leads me to consider is... what made them zombies? It wasn't just "drowning in water," as that'd just make a ton of corpses. I had to be something that effected the entire Builder race, over some non-instantaneous period of time (they had time to escape to the End, after all). Some kind of curse or plague hit the Builders hard, turning them into zombies, husks, drowned, and probably the skeletons, too. The drowned died in the water, sure, but the reason they're still around is 'cause something _else_ made'em undead Thank you for coming to my TED Talk

    What about the pirate ships that you can find on land. The very rare ones. I think that those ships have found the heart of the sea because you can find it on the non sunken ships, and that's how they were able to build the ocean temples.

    This is just a random thought I had (Idk if someone else has commented it before but Ye ye-) So you know the spawners that you can find in caves? Well some of the spawners are zombie and skeleton spawners. What if before they tried to bring back people by using the Wither stuff, they tried it by bringing them back by using spawners but failed? Idk it was just a random idea I had, great video Btw! ^^
