Intention is not magic and doesn't need hypothetical permission to exist. If your words

that denies the very reality of intention that you employ to state your denial. The fact
that you deny that it does shows me that you are only capable of framing the question in
the one way that it can never be answered. Your view is to say, I choose to deny my
ability to choose.
No, that is a misconception. Simply because there is some randomness at a molecular level
doesn't make the whole process noise. Or looked at another way the structure of you brain
amplifies and shapes the noise and combines it with perception to produce your actions in
a way that we recognize as constituting your consistent character.
