The fact that the most habitable regions also are the regions which are most favorable for learning about the universe can be used to make a case for design.
"As it is, we know that the laws of physics and initial conditions, themselves fine-tuned, are compatible with a wide range of local conditions, only a few of which are habitable. It's intrinsically interesting, and surprising, to find that those few habitable places are also the ones most conducive to diverse types of scientific discovery." Gonzalez & Richards, p 304
"What is so striking is that our cosmos appears to be not just supremely fit for our being and for our biological adaptations, but also for our understanding." Quote from Michael Denton's Nature's Destiny, p262.
The conditions for habitability and the conditions for measurability would seem to be independent. The 'coincidence' of them happening together might be a clue.
