    Won't Find Another Quite Like Earth

    According to new data, it was found that Earth perhaps did not retain water easily because of dirt, but because of plants.

    I'm not going to explain the full context of the article here.

    While that article may be true, it doesn't support the thesis that we will never find an exoplanet like earth. The article doesn't argue why other planets wouldn't develop their own vegetation, which is quite likely.

    I think the author was arguing that no other planets will develop quite like ours from what they've seen in relation to other exoplanets or something.

    I interpreted it as "while we may find planets that can support life, they will be radically different than our own planet." This is highly logical, evolution isn't a checklist up to humanity, and in many places in the world different life thrives under different conditions. It is highly likely there is going to be some fucked up alien lifeforms chillin' all up in them bitches.
