    4.Why would the World Government oppose such an idea? The way I see it, if the WG governs the world, then opening up and unifying the sea should bring nothing but benefits. It would simplify trade between nations, economies would prosper and it would simplify the monitoring of the seas quite a bit, if they no longer have to worry about absurd climate changes.
    My theory is that the World Government's plan is All Bridges which directly goes against All Blue.

    Opening the seas would definitely complicate the monitoring. The less ways there are on the seas, the easier it is for the WG to rule them and control the travels. The entrance of Paradise and New World are probably the most evident examples of how useful it is to catch pirates. About the bad weather, I'm pretty the WG is developing technologies to change and control it, so that they can go wherever they want into the wild seas.

    Interesting thread.

During the Fishman Arc, we also saw how the citizens were told to evacuate from the Fishman Island to the 'surface' without anyone even questioning if they can accomplish that. Thus, we can safely conclude that any Merman or Mermaid can swim from the Fishman Island to the 'surface' without any problems at all. In your theory, you argued that the Noah would be used to evacuate the citizens of Fishman Island. That would be completely unnecessary.

    In support of your theory, you brought up Joy Boy's apology to the previous Poseidon. However, if we take this one step further and look at Neptune's apology to Joy Boy, and think about it in the context you're presenting, then the end-result is very illogical. Neptune apologised to Joy Boy for the fact that Noah was getting destroyed. If I'm not mistaken, Neptune also said something similar to that the lives of the citizens are a top priority and destroying Noah can't be avoided. This doesn't make much sense. Why would Neptune apologise for destroying the Noah in order to save the lives of the Fishmen if the whole point of the Noah in the first place was to save the lives of the Fishmen? "I'm sorry but the method through which you wanted to save our lives has to be destroyed to save our lives." Why would he direct that apology to Joy Boy if the fishmen are the only losers in that scenario?
    The reason is obvious. Unlike the OP assumed, the promise wasn't for the fishmen to use noah to escape destruction....

    If this theory is true then the destruction's main target is Mariejoa. Were the AK evil ? Would they destroy a city and its inabhitant justs for the completion of their project ? Answer : No. The former king Joy Boy asked the fishmen's queen to help them evacuate Mariejoa and probably Sabaody in Noah.

    This links to your other point...

I might be wrong here, but would something that is so far below the surface actually have any effect on the state that the surface is in? Even if the Fishman Island lies directly beneath Mariejoa, it is extremely improbably that anything would reach the Fishman Island because of the current and water pressure.
    I still think Fishmen's island will be destroyed, the seer's prediction is just that convenient in the whole plot, it will be realized at some point. This is not merely foreshadowing now.

    Fishmen's Island might be destroyed because of aftereffects, just like the OP said. It's true that it seems well protected that deep in the sea, but we're talking about cataclysmic events here so it's possible to have repercussions there too.

    But... it could also be because when Luffy reaches Raftel and somehow decides to put the One Piece plan in action, the WG/Marines decide to go all out and put obstacles in the SH's way. If these theories are correct, the SH need the ancient weapons, and one them just happens to be located at.... That's correct Fishmen's Island.

    There was an interesting conversation between Robin and Neptune at some point about Poseidon. Neptune was afraid that the marines would hear about his daughter's abilities. But someone (Caribou) was eavesdropping, and mentioned was one his contacts would be very interested in this information.

    If Caribou (or anyone else for that matter like some of the former Hody's slaves) delivers this information to the marines, and luffy is on the point of applying the AK's plan, then a ruthless solution is to destroy fishmen's island. We know who the fleet admiral is now... The perfect man for the situation, who will never hesitate to get a buster call in this case, with the marine ships coated it sould be doable, or even ask the admirals to go there in person an do their best.

    Re: The Inherited Will, "One Piece"

    Since you bumped the thread, a thought of mine as well; you claimed that the AK was Shandora. After the last chapters I'd say it is Arabasta. Doflamingo said that the WG was formed by 19 kingdoms and not 20, since Arabasta did not want to participate. What if they indeed fought as you said, but there were 20 kingdoms to begin with and not 20. Arabasta was the 20th, the AK. They lost the war so they did not want to participate to this new "World Government". Otherwise, why would Arabasta fight against the AK but would not like to participate in it?

    Oh, the irony, they picked up Robin from Arabasta, the Ancient Kingdom. Not to mention that they have a nakama (Vivi) form that kingdom, who (guess what) is the princess of this kingdom. So that her nakama help her create the dream of their ancestors (well, she doesn't even know though), One Piece. If you remember Vivi said that she is not even mad at Robin being Luffy's nakama. How could she get mad at her anyway? She's the key to this theory.

    Re: The Inherited Will, "One Piece"

    I love this theory in terms of the golden pattern and destroying the mountain and creating all blue. I'm not sure about the AK's one piece plan thing though, but anything's possible. I think it would be interesting if that area was already all blue in ancient times and the mountain, grand line and calm belt were man made in order to protect whatever is on Raftel and Roger was the only person to find out and destroying the mountain will put everything back how it was. Highly unlikely though. Here's what I can't get my head around. Roger's the only person to reach Raftel, he finds out he's sick so he gives himself up to the government and tells the world that he's hidden his treasure somewhere and they have to go find it in order to start the pirate era in hopes that the one he's waiting for (aka luffy) will go after the treasure and arrive at the island and find whatever's there, whether or not it's info about the AK's plan, and then a huge war is going to break out because whitebeard said so and I've seen an interview with Oda confirming it. Uh, Ok? So my issue is this: one piece isn't really treasure? I don't just mean gold and jewels. Obviously it would be boring if one piece ended with Luffy sitting on a giant stack of gold but it's not even something that had real personal value to Roger like how everyone seems to have a treasure that is important to them in more ways than just it's monetary value. Like Luffy's hat. The whole series is based around a McGuffin just to start a war? I find that really sad actually. I mean even if this theory is proven wrong it's still confirmed that whatever one piece is will start a war and that's really awful to me. Sorry for the rambling and I hope it's not too late to post since this theory is quite a few years old.
