I imagine in a sufficiently large and ancient universe, that logic and probability would suggest ' if it can, it will exist sooner or later'.

If the earliest life appeared on Earth some four billion years ago, when would the Kickstarters for that life have evolved elswhere?

It seems equally as likely as not that life could develop spontaneously in different places, however, I am no biologist.
