Yes! Just watched the whole series recently. What an ending!
 
My son's back from uni, last night we got through three episodes on DVD. I've seen it before, my son hasn't.
 
Superb series, written by some of the Deep Space 9 writers. 
 
But the ending was poo I thought.

Really? I thought it was an excellent twist.
One of the few series I've seen that was consistently good throughout.

Apologies for going off topic Embarrassed

Hmm... when we get to the end, I'll give it some more thought. But the first time I saw it, I thought the end lost it's way. I expected something better.

Irrelevant really since, whatever it was like or however it was arranged, if we were sitting here now reading this post or never existed, it wouldn't matter one bit.

The vast majority of these possible universes would not have allowed for the existence of life, so we are very fortunate indeed to have a universe that does.
 
We evolved according to the conditions available. We may have evolved differently given different conditions.
If we hadn't evolved to the level required to ponder the argument or didn't exists at all then the argument is moot, therefore, is there an argument at all? Seems a bit Zen like to me...
 
We may also be a very insignificant part of the entire makeup of the universe. Making judgements on the existence of life according to certain conditions we believe to be true may be a little naive.
