        I can’t buy the winter merchandise because I live in Australia and here it is summer when it’s winter for you and vise versa.

          Ironically, most of the big words could totally show up in the middle of an episode, and nobody would bat an eye.

            There are TOO MANY similarities between the Minecraft guardians and the BOTW guardians.

                      So minecraft is encouraging me to loot the most sacred artifact of the Muslim religion.

                      Nope, someone else crazier than me can try that.

                                      It’s funny cuz I know all about the ancient civilizations you mentioned. (We’re currently learning about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, in fact we just tested on it today. We already did Greece, Rome, Egypt, and Mesopotamia.) 😋

                                            In real life Lung Fish can live on land and can still breath without suffocating and amphibians are an actual thing IRL. But I agree Matt someone had to create the Mineshafts and Strongholds and so Steve could be like the Fallout character, hes just waking up from a Coma while the rest of society has fallen and nature has reclaimed the planet.

                                            Matt on a side note I think your 100% right about the religious factor. After watching your video I realized if the temples are under water... could that mean the Great Flood happened? Like the biblical flood that all three dominate modern religions have in their holy books? Perhaps ancient Steve's angered the gods and so they flooded the planet? Or Perhaps the gods started over and created a new Adam, male OC and Eve Female OC.

                                                      Or the 23 pillars are just how it is built because of the dimensions of it?
                                                      It's like saying that the desert temples are all the same size or that the original villager huts are all the same dimensions

                                                                              Let's say endermann were humans, they get hurt when they touch water (flowing and rain) and if your saying is true that they build the monuments to escape the water then maybe that is why they have an entire room for sponges
                                                                              That would also explain why strongholds are underground

                                                                              But there are other things that bother me like the fact that monuments aren't flooded they are literally under the ocean and they are guarded by mechanical FISH, it's like THEY aren't afraid of water

                                                                              There is also the fact that most locations have monster spawners, the temples have trapes and monuments have guardians, so if there were human they weren't really getting along
                                                                              My theory is that skeletons(all types), zombies(all types) and enderman were all human but their inhumanity drove them to become monsters (the same as when a villager gets struck by lightning it turns into a witch, but the human did it on purpose), the enderman could have gone to the end for protection but got a reckless protector and use the fruit to gain the ability to teleport (trough potions, curses, ect), zombies might have have changed to gain the ability to not have to eat or something, drownds so they can breath under water, skeletons probably the same reason as zombies, wither skeletons could use the heat of the nether to give them fire resistance
