Intention is not magic and doesn't need hypothetical permission to exist. If your words are random ricochets of quantum radioactive decay or thermodynamic anomalies, then they are meaningless noise. You can't account for them because any accounting you can produce with your fingertips is only the random twitchings of your nervous system. Your view 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.
