We're Living in a Cosmic Void!

Science now has evidence that our Milky Way galaxy exists in the biggest cosmic void ever observed - up to seven times greater than ANY other known void! Interesting from it's potential theological implications - as per the protection buffer it provides against cataclysmic forces from other galaxies - via an abyss nearly 2 billion years across. This might be why various measuring techniques show the universe to be expanding at differing speeds.

Anyway, fascinating stuff!

The question should be why did God isolate this galaxy so much from almost every other galaxy (except the Magellanic Clouds, but they are small)?
Could that mean there is evidence of life in other galaxies?
