      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 are more evidence to prove my point, let me know.

                                                One thing to add to this Is some of the builders could have brought the soul sand and withered skeletons skulls to other places and once they created the wither they could not tell others in time before someone else made it, so there could have been many of them.

                                                        Hello Internet, I have thought of a possible solution to Minecraft's mysteries. First to start it with the underman theory.
                                                        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.

They found a terrible success. With a scream and a burst of fumes, a glowing monstrosity appeared before them. All was quiet for a few moments, until it let forth an almighty explosion. And so the battle had begun.¨-(Mobestiary, Alex Wiltshire, page 101.)

                                                                          Yea there’s a one hole In your theory what about the eye of enders and enderpearls, eye of Enders are made of enderpearls but where do the enderpearls come from if there wasn’t any endermen just the builders I mean if they were the first enderman and the last builders wouldn’t get them still because they wouldn’t kill their own kind would they? So how would they get back to stronghold if you need food I mean matpat did say it was really deep underground so I think eyes of enders AND enderpearls can be made and endermen drop them because they think using them will get them back but the ones on the surface are just from chorus fruit brought back from the end then they ate it then they turned in to endermen then discovered the teleportation power then teleported to the surface in hopes of seeing their creations on last time, the ones in the end are trapped because of the wither and the ones in the end keep holding them in hopes of going back but can’t. That is my theory

                                                                                    OH! Maybe the Pillagers actually helped in creating the Wither? And when it found villages and pillaged outposts, it didn't attack because they resembled it's creators?
