I really like the theory of Mont Morilionite, where the clay would pull the amino acids together on its surface to create long chains of RNA.Not only that it would also take the lipid fatty acids necessary for a membrane and act as a catylist for membrane development, which in turn would encase pieces of RNA. The lipid membrane also naturally pulls in free floating amino acids almost as if it is eating.

Amino acids makes polypeptides and proteins, not RNA.
