      Still, it can't be taken as proof of alien life, or convincing
      evidence, given the possibility of contamination etc.

      The vast bulk of scientists now do AFAIK. Hoyle was many years ago,
      and his notion isn't considered credible.

      Nowadays nobody in the scientific community is AFAIK.

      A0 stars have main sequence lifespans of a mere 500 million years-
      a ninth of what is needed for life to evolve to intelligence, based
      on the example of a world where conditions are optimal.

      Insufficient? There is enough information about some worlds to
      assume, a priori, that they're lifeless. Venus is an example.
