Does a Galaxy have an electrical charge?  If so, it would have a natural tendency to repell other galaxies that have a similar charge.  This makes more sense to me than saying that Dark Energy is responsible for expansion of the Universe.  No one has ever proven that Dark Energy even exists.  I welcome comments.  Regards, Joe L. Ogan

It seems likely to me that galaxies are charged but I'd expect their net charges to be very low.  I don't think there's any mechanism that would result in all galaxies having the same charge so while some might repel, others would attract, and on a nearly equal basis.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!
