Huygens data confirm that solid particles found in Titan's atmosphere resemble tholins, complex organic molecules created in laboratories.

I suspect that Titan will be too cold for life. Although complex organic molecules may for in the atmosphere they have long periods of time to do so. Life requires fairly rapid chemical processes and these seem very unlikely a -178C.
