It didn't, and we can't make such a claim. No you said that and I refuted it. I told you no one said "the amino acids that formed life" came from meteorites. Let me repeat, for clarification: if ever a meteorite was found that contained amino acids, then we would have evidence that "the amino acids that formed life" could have come from such meteorites. That's all. No one has ever claimed to know the precise steps leading to abiogenesis. I was just correcting some of your bloopers. Again that's not what I said. I said (in so many words) supernovae produced all the raw materials for mineral, plant and animal life evolved from the remnants of the prior supernova. You begin with that, because it's an observed fact. You don't arrive at it as a final conclusion. Again, you have to incorporate all the data or you're operating a biased system which is invalid. Start from the birth of stars in the nebulae. It's seen all over the sky every night. You have to begin there. And of course these are snapshots back throughout time. It's a continuous history of stellar accretion. We have lost the thread to the stellar source of amino acids. I recall that there was a link (provided by Trippy) and I haven't had time to follow it yet, so I've been talking around this point as if it's a done deal. billvon has me thinking I mistook some prior post. I'll play catch up sometime tomorrow.
