Our solar system was optimized for life - or how we can imagine better

Creationists have made much of Earth being in the 'Goldilocks Zone' - just the right distance from the Sun.  In the past, evolution-proponents had discussed how much of the solar system, and the universe at large, was unsuitable for life.

Some bored people at planetplanet have looked at how to fit more usable terrain in the Goldilocks zone and the results look very designed but by no means impossible for a God.
This puts 36 habitable worlds in the Goldilocks Zone.  Not as good as Ringworld, but a definite step in the right direction.
