    Everything can be explained by science, including the "magics" of Dr Strange. Thor himself stated that they live in a place where magic and science are one in the same, and Dr Strange continues that statement. Today, I'm proving to you that the magics of Dr. Strange can all be explained with science.

    Sorry Pat you lost this one. Scarlet Witch isn’t using quantum mechanics. And in infinity war Strange literally split into multiple clones of himself and saw the future.

    Just because it can be proved as being science doesn't mean it isn't magic

    It's funny cause all of MatPat's theories are the opposite of what is shown. What's next? Spider-Man DIDN'T gain his powers from a spider? :o

    Anyone: Movies about magic don't need science to make sense.
    Matpat: Let's debunk Doctor Strange with science so that it makes more sense.

    How can you “debunk” magic with science? It’s MAGIC, by definition it doesn’t have to follow the laws of physics.

    Warpath please read this. I don't know how much of this mat believes but I think he tries to think of the most asinine thing to say about popular fiction and see how many people he can trigger. Then he backs it up with some light reading and math. Pretty cool, AND funny if you ask me.
    So mat pat am I right...or is this nothing but a THEORY a Gam- I mean A FILM THEOR-..... can I even call it that? A USclip THEORY!
