The concept of irreducible complexity is a great intuitive concept which has historically lacked a well-defined theoretical basis. This paper will show how computational theory gives an adequate account for what irreducible complexity is, what irreducible complexity’s possible biological implications are, and how irreducible complexity can be useful to molecular biologists and creation biologists.
