why does there have to be God when luck or chance is just as real?
There is millions of galaxies and each Galaxy there is millions of stars and each star there will be planets that orbit the star. So some where out in the universe a planet will have the right orbit just by chance just like Earth. It's like placing a billion bets in a casino eventually one will win at least by sheer luck so why can't life just happen by luck. Why does there have to be a deity that put earth in the right orbit? why does there have to be a deity that created life?

So how does that work? We can't explain it so it is just dumb luck!
The Anthropic Principle is really little more than a tautology used to respond to the tuning argument made by some supporters of creation. It does not really explain anything! There is life on earth because the conditions necessary for life exist on earth. DUH! It does not take a Rhodes scholar to figure that out, but it also does not really explain anything. Because it does not explain anything, it also does not prove or disprove anything and does not qualify as an alternative explanation for anything. Essentially the Anthropic Principle is nothing more than a materialist/naturalists variation of the explanation of the gaps. We can't explain it so - insert the Anthropic Principle!

"Why does there have to be a deity that put earth in the right orbit?"
There doesn't. That's the Anthropic Principle:

"So some where out in the universe a planet will have the right orbit just by chance just like Earth."
And that's the Law of Large Numbers, which is why the Anthropic Principle is such a comfortable natural explanation for our existence.

There doesn't have to be a God. It's just that there is a God.
There doesn't have to be the dwarf planet Pluto. It's just that there is the dwarf planet Pluto.

If you understand how complex life is on a biological level, you will know how stupid "chance" is as a means of accounting for it.

In the beginning there was Yave. And he said LET THERE BE LIGHT, and there was. Sound like the big bang to me
