But the problem with "possible" is there being only one Earth. We can't go kick it with the Martians and compare notes because there are no Martians, and amino acid derivatives found in space bring so much controversy that one must wonder just what was found. Assuming no duplicity on the part of the scientists, said discoveries reinforce the carbon-based model.

I would say that 'lack of discoveries reinforce the carbon-based model'.
