Re: RE; You are uninformed
Does anyone have any thoughts of non-carbon based life?
I think our view on life is flawed, carbon is just another element, its nothing special. Other atoms can also make 4 bonds, they would probably just need a fluid other than water to be comfortable in. Our planets temp and pressure are perfect for carbon compounds, but another planets temp and pressure could be perfect for something else, maybe the next 4 bond making atom in that group (i don't remember the table too well)
Why should life need water?
This question has plagued me for a long time.
