I read the article an, well..it sounds highly improbably. Just some scientist dreaming and wishing IMO.

Well,stuff like this can be imagined by almost anyone,nothing special.Unless you're arguing that the origin of dinosaurs came from other planets which I think is crazy.

This is HIGHLY unlikely. Dinosaurs specifically evolved to conditions on earth (all earth life for that matter), why should another planet's life be the same? Different planet = different conditions = different lifeforms! "Alien" life might not necessarily be carbon based, and might not need oxygen, water or any earth stuff to survive. Back to the question, the chances that 2 planets evolved identical life is practically 0.

Don't completely agree. There is scope for unknown diversified life forms, but the laws of physics are the same everywhere.
It's more likely that life on other planets is quite similar to ours.

Well...if the universe is infinite (unknown, I believe), and there are infinite planets, the chance of 2 planets having near-identical lifeforms would theoretically be 100%, even if the individual chance for each planet were very low.
As one person put it, if you took an infinite number of monkeys and gave them all typewriters, the chance of one producing Shakespreare would theoretically be 100%.
That said, I don't know if there are any advanced lifeforms on other planets, or if there are even any lifeforms at all.

Yeah anomonyous, I was thinking that. Pretty logical.
