        Seeing the research you did on Islam and Muslim beliefs made me extremely happy, seeing an objective view on it is so refreshing considering how Muslims and Islam as a faith are ridiculed and seen through the eyes of misinterpreted/biased views

              9:20 since Piglins love gold, I think it would be cool of they were hiding it from them in those monuments instead

                I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who noticed this about the Guardians.

                    I was just sitting here thinking "huh, I don't have 23 all that much in my life," and then I remembered.... Every year, I must acknowledge mortality ever creeping toward me... on July the 23rd... WELP

                          In a more simplified explanation, basically, guardians are mechanical beasts made to protect/guard an "ancient" building which holds a sacred treasure.

                            What if it was built by the ancient builder race like you discussed before but as they were retreating some of the people refused to leave the holy site and drown

                                  I really would like to see MatPat find out the origins of the totem of undying, it's really a mystery on what's behind it?

                                                The drowned actually are zombies that drowned in the ocean. You can create drowned by pushing a zombie into water deep enough to drown it.

                                                          Im pretty sure the official strangers Minecraft skin pack reinforces this. There is something I believe called a prismarine zealot, and it looks similar to a guardian.

                                                          I doubt my comment on the previous two part video had anything to do with it, but I wan't to be consistent in my criticisms/feedback
                                                          I really enjoyed this video and its pacing. the two parter was disclaimed early on. It felt like this video was mostly about the theory this time, and i really liked that. Also the end of the video gave me answers to questions i had at the beginning but by the end, Matpat brought up new questions i'm looking forward to seeing in the next part. I really apreciated that. It was more satisfying than most of the other two parters i've watched on the channel so far. Another example of, what i think, is a good and satisfying two part-er: Rosalina's origin and Peach is dead episodes were really well done. Also thanks to Team Theorist for all of your hard work beyond the videos in things like advocating for the gaming community and fighting cancer. you guys are awesome,
