As others have pointed out, with a current sample of 1 there's little room for prediction. With regard to the chemistry, I have read that amino acids are by-product of the star cycle (along with other heavy elements and molecules) so, as I understand it (poorly), there MAY possibly be some basis on which to argue a common chemical foundation to all life....

It'd be interesting to hear from someone who's qualified in this field...

Also, note that evo claims of convergent evolution argue that different and similar forms arise via environmental pressures and so evos already refute ironically the claim that such similarities must be the result of a common ancestor.

Wrong. If a homogenous form is able to spread over a wide enough area then vaying environmental pressures will come into play, most especially if sub-populations become isolated. There's no contradiction.

Edited by RickJB, : No reason given.
