Not really.  Whomever "I" turned out to be would be "me," so the probability of "me" being born was 1.

No one really exists.

The you that was born is not the you now. All you share with that person is a few scratches in your brain - we call them memories. Everything else has changed and keeps changing constantly.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
