It seems that, if you believe in god, that all intent stems from that 'being' ... but where does this god get intent? That paradox is the 'turtles all the way down' problem.
And, if you don't believe in god, where does intent originate? I mean, in any deterministic model, intent doesn't exist - instead, there is a highly complex, probably non-linear, set of causes and effects.
But the Big Bang gives it all a beginning and the Third Law of Thermal Dynamics gives it an end. So, in the case of: 'it's all dominoes slamming into each other', there is no real intent - just a chain of interacting events. But what caused the first domino to fall and what effect does the last one to fall have on anything?
Meanwhile, if you do believe in actual intent, then don't you have to believe in a cause without an effect and/or an effect without a cause? Don't you have to believe in at least the possibility of something making absolutely no sense whatsoever?
