    This film develops the idea of irreducible complexity introduced in the previous episode.

    To explain irreducible complexity they invoke the example of a mousetrap.

    It has five parts and every part is essential for the mousetrap to function, ie: to catch mice.

    The mousetrap could not develop through natural selection because natural selection requires individual small changes that each provide a survival advantage for the living entity.

    So none of the components of the mousetrap are of any use or provide any useful function until all five parts are assembled together and then the complete unit functions.

    The film shows that such assembly of complex units can not be driven by natural selection.
