If an omnipotent creator exists, then who is to say "He" didn't create millions of civilizations, all sorts of other scentient life forms, spread throughout the universe. Some even call on AOL at times.

Mike that's an excellent rational question. But once u start asking questions like this, it's really not a religious discussion anymore. You are venturing into the area of testable hypothesis, and scientific thought. Once you start asking very good, probing questions, they're really not religious questions anymore. Ultimately, religious beliefs rests on faith.... by definition. At some point in the line of inquiry about matters of fact or rational conjecture, you're going to have to ask, "well, prove it." At that point you are asking for evidence. At that it is no longer religion.
