If the universe is infinite
 
Does that mean that it must include everything, including all the gods and goddesses from every culture?

No, there are plenty of models that would include no such thing. For example, if the universe were an infinite collection of identical distinct galaxies.

If the universe is truly infinite, how would we know that there are no deviations anywhere(not even one)?

As in infinitely extending spatially? I can't make sense of this. Please reformulate the question.
