There's a huge difference between arguing that two things are related because they're both made out of matter from supernovae, and arguing that two things are related because both descended from exactly the same living cell, which used RNA and DNA with the same (or almost exactly the same) transcription language; already possessed some of the same copying machinery and shared parts of the genome with both descendants.
