No no no - they've got it all wrong! Never mind cells! Never mind water! "Evolving the Alien" ("What Does a Martian Look Like" in the US) by Stewart & Cohen makes a fantastic case for adaptive diversity through natural selection using the most exotic substrates the universe may have to offer, in environments we can only begin to imagine.

Anyone interested in this field should read that book before taking a single step into the 'how likely?' arena.
