I'm currently reading some papers various problems related to the anthropic problem and I'm planning to write up a post when I'm finished. To this end, it would be useful to know what position people hold so that I know what arguments I need to address. So what is your position on anthropics?

Various anthropic problems include the Sleeping Beauty problem, the Absent-minded driver, the Dr Evil problem, the Doomsday Argument, the Presumptuous Philosopher, the Sailor's Child, Fermi Paradox and the Argument from Fine-Tuning.
