Main Question or Discussion Point

Would it be just a terrestrial planet with a similar amount of water and oxygen as Earth? and of course similar distance from the sun or would it have to really resemble Earth?

The former one I dont think would be all that rare but the latter one would really really be rare, exceedingly rare.

What is the current consensus on Earth-like planets now?

Abundant? common? alot? some? fraction? rare?

Huh, thats something to think about. Terrestrial means of or realting to or composed of land as well as biology; living or growing on land; not aquadic. So it might not be a terrestrial plant it if just has water and oxygen the way Earth does. It would need to have some form of life on it to be considered a terrestrial. Anything that moved there would be extraterrestrial since it did not originate on the plant.

Humans are terrestrials to Earth. However there are some humans I'm not so sure about.:wink:
