Goofs

The revelation that Lister is his own father creates a rather large problem: In the Series 2 episode "Better Than Life", he recalls his father's funeral when comforting Rimmer after the latter received a letter from his mother informing him that his father had died. Lister was probably adopted, so he would be speaking about his adoptive parents, rather than his real parents. Also, in the Series 5 episode "The Inquisitor", after Lister and Kryten are declared "unworthy of existence" by the episode's title character, an alternate version of Lister, described as "coming from the same barrel" as the other one, somehow takes his place, despite the fact that if the original Lister never existed, there should be nobody by the name of Dave Lister at all.

Kryten: But what about before that? It was the same on the SS Augustus!
Lister: Well, they died of old age!
