    Except, the player is 1.8 blocks, skeletons are 1.99 blocks, and wither skeletons are 2.4 blocks tall

    So wither skeletons and skeletons have to be another, although similar species from the player

            I think you should look into the temples, maybe they had an ancient religion or worshiped something? And the items in the chests are often valuable, and hard to get, they had to have a reason to build them and fill them with things and a trap to stop them being stolen.

                Think about the way the wither 3 heads from once human beings and 4 spots for multiple souls 3heads 3sets of arms and with 4 souls in one body so they fight for who controls the one body then the souls not realising what they are doing while fighting becoming the wither and that was my theory

                  Storyline: A handful of soldiers die in the Nether, people bury them in the ground, the ground becomes soul sand (later becoming the Soul Sand Valley), Wither Skeletons rise, Humans try to ressurect dead, go to Witches for help, create Wither, Wither destroys world but also create the Undead, Illagers, and Pillagers, the Humans retreat to The End and become Endermen, one of the humans, Brine, Decides to take one of the End Ships and bail, later becoming Herobrine, 100 Minecraftian years later Steve and Alex are born.

                          What I don't understand is if the villagers can't craft then who crafted the villages?

                            I think it's called the beginning because you've probably defeated everything, and gain an item that helps you create your world easily. If you want to build a huge detailed world in survival, you should probably begin with getting a beacon.

                              hang on matpat your missing that before the wither came they must have built villages because villagers can't build and going off of theis jepsen's theory i think that a small few of builders survived and evolved into the villagers that we see
                              how about that theory?

                                    Also to add on, if the wither had already been summoned, why isn't there one waiting for us when we spawn in? I mean it's an undead creature, it's not just gonna die of natural causes again.

                                          Y'know,none of his minecraft videos explains why Steve and Eve exist you should do a theory on that topic.

                                            I have a theory about the villagers, the builders built the wither but killed it but they found out how to create command blocks and try to recreate their friends, but they get villagers, they don't know any of the memorys of their friends so they use the command blocks on soul sand and wither skeleton skulls, instead they create the wither storm (Minecraft story mode might have some truth to this) so they were forced to go the end.

                                                MatPat everything that you said could be true but your missing one thing. If this ancient society of builders did create the wither then how did it get to normal realm. One more thing in creative mode in Minecraft you can create the wither with no problem but in survival let’s say that the ancient society had an enemy of other builders and when they heard about the wither the decided to use it as a weapon and created those underground and underwater monuments to prepare for the destruction but they will also have a large amount of dead if they tried to find away to control it. Soon the wither found and killed some builders if they were hunting for food and both builders decide to put their differences aside and create the end portal but not all builders want to go thinking that the wither could be defeated or controlled and eventually they defeated the wither due to enchanted armor, weapons, and special potions but since the witches were evil and probably didn’t get anything in return so they decided to do a curse where the remaining builders instantly turned into zombies and skeletons that we see today and Steve and Alex are descendent of the old builders the last remaining builders. BUT HEY THATS JUST A THEORY A GAME THEORY AND LIKE AND COMMENT IF YOU ENJOYED THIS THEORY AND I HOPE YOUR READING THIS MATPAT.

                                                            I think that the people who became the wither skeletons are a completely different race from the "advanced race" you introduced in the first video on endermen. Think about it, the wither skeletons are unusually tall. The people who became the endermen had some of their people who became the other undead mobs (save maybe zombie pigmen). The people who became the wither skeletons were taller than the race that became the endermen and the race of people you are as the player. So in the end you have four races:
                                                            1. Player race (including Steve and Alex)
                                                            2. Ancient Race of Builders who became the endermen (and maybe the regular undead mobs)
                                                            3. The race that became the wither skeletons
                                                            4. The villager race (including witches, pillagers, etc.)

                                                                              I have a villager theory:

                                                                              Some builders didn't want to leave their society behind, so they stayed and fled trying to get so far away the wither would never find them

                                                                              Evidence 1: Village variety
                                                                              This is small evidence, but it helps my point, different amount of people went off together and form separate villages, which is why there are so many variations

                                                                              Evidence 2: lack of building knowledge
                                                                              First up, the villagers CAN craft. If they are experienced enough, they will offer pickaxes or axes to you. But their buildings are simplistic, with basic designs and sizes. They have forgotten advanced building from years of running, and the simple buildings they use are what they crafted knowing it may be destroyed any second

                                                                              Evidence 3: Rare structure

                                                                              This one is quick. There is a small chance to find a zombie village, a cobwebbed covered village with only zombie villagers. They are villages that either didn't run fast enough or were left alone too long and when the wither came back, they were unprepared.

                                                                              Evidence 4: villager posture

                                                                              This is my final evidence, but notice villagers always keep their hands covered (unless turned zombies, but zombies aren't of right mind so that doesn't count). This is because they are afraid of what they will craft after the wither incident. However, some villages got so big, they were willing to try again. Through trying new things, they used the base of the wither summoning, with something new, to create the iron golem. That is why you need a high population of villagers for them to summon iron golems.

                                                                              This is all the evidence I have, if you have any arguments or more evidence to prove my point, let me know.

                                                                                              MatPat was convincing on how the endermen could be actual people who have evolved in the end. Then with how they got there, using the end portal, obviously but why? to run from something as he said. They were indeed running from the wither after being desperate for the power to create life itself. And then they accidentally created the wither and fled to the end. Thinking there would be a way out. but indeed it was a one way trip. No escape. They made cities and hid their things for safe-keeping. Desperate to escape, they tried and tried to escape but couldn't. They soon would die from hunger, but luckily they found chorus fruit. after eating too much chorus fruit they evolved into endermen and became monsters. and that is what our Minecraft world is now.
                                                                                              you're welcome.
