I'm with George, above.
All these articles on the "probability of life" should really be called the "probability of life LIKE OURS".
Who says water is the only solvent? Who says there is such a narrow temperature range where self-replicators can form?
Life on other planets would form based on whatever conditions it evolved in; there's no reason to think our rocky, aqueous planet is the only way to do things.
