This article (Cosmos is fine-tuned to permit scientific discovery (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CI302:

The conditions that enable life to exist also give the best overall setting for scientific discovery; habitability correlates with measurability. For example, the moon exists with the right size and distance so that a perfect total solar eclipse is observable, and the total solar eclipse of 1919 was crucial in testing general relativity.

CreationWiki response:

This is not a creationist claim, since it is not use in support of creation science nor even ID in general.

There are some cases such as the match between the observed size of both the sun and Moon, our placement in our galaxy, and our galaxy's placement in the universe, where an argument can be made that they seem to indicate design, but that is different than the above claim.
