← New Drake Equation To Quantify Habitability?

I think throughout evolutionary history, it also proves that life once started, is pretty hard to completely destroy...hence "life finds a way"

i think it is a general mistake for many people thinking that life in the universe must be similar to life on earth in terms of chemistry.

If life (or rather replication) established itself over 3.8Ga on Earth then i see no reason why there aren't many planets out there with different chemistries given certain conditions that would not support it.
