At this point it is all theory but still even if we are the remains of an older system the total system is on 13.7 billion years old. There is not
enough time and not enough chances for it to be valid anyway. The earth is only 4.5 billion years old. So in their theory of it taking 9.5 billion
years from bacteria to us it is still not enough time to produce what we have today. Take into consideration what the chances of a comet having life
on it and it hitting the earth at the right time (not to hot not to cold) is astronomical to say the least. Calculated at 4^300, a number so large
that it could not possibly happen by chance even once in 13 billion years, the age of the universe.
That's a whole lot of "ifs"
The article you linked was a bunch of people number crunching. They were using hard numbers and extremes. They were building a theory off another
unproved theory so everything the presented is essentially conjecture. In one breath they're saying it takes millions of years to double in
complexity, but then they say some elements double in 20 because of different factors. It's worse than measuring things with "hands".. There is a
basis for their calculations but none of means anything.. It's more or less a proof that their idea can be calculated. Whether or not its accurate is
a whole different realm of research.
