on sources of Chirality
There are actually quite a few well known theories on how Chirality developed, so there is no great mystery there. No one is sure about which method or combination of methods led to the current life forms, but the posibility of a natural cause is certainly there.
Here are a few references on potential methods.
Purdue scientists discover why we’re all lefties deep down
Origin of chirality in biological molecules
Rocks May Have Given a Hand to Life
the Weak Force as cause
something to get all stirred up about
just plain chemistry
There are many other such references but these should help you get started.

Re: on sources of Chirality
Argument from incredulity won't work over here on the science side.
No one objects to any belief you might personally hold. You are free to believe 2 + 2 = 5 all day long.
However, in your OP you present Chirality as a poblem. In response I present not one, not two, not three, not four, not five but six different all natural methods that would account for what we see.
QED, there is no Recurrent Problem of Chirality, no need for some ID mechanism.
