Are there too few Supernova Remnants to support the Milky Way being billions of years old?

There are many reasons why this is wrong. The first one is the assumption of 1 supernova per 25 years. That was the value arrived at in Gustav Tammann's article published in 1970. Others got values up ...

Is abiogenesis virtually impossible?

No, the article doesn't claim that probability of abiogenesis cannot be higher than 10-1018. The only claim it makes it that even if the probability of an event is as low as 10-1018, it still can ...
