This is only my opinion.
I think everyone can agree that that there can only be one ultimate reality. There can't really be two or more seperate realities. Reality encompasses everything that exists.
So when I think of all the different religious viewpoints, I have to think that they're either all just made up, or that they contain merely pieces of the puzzle of the overall picture. I tend to lean towards the latter.
Now if intelligent alien life exists (and the Drake equation states that this is a certainty) and has their own faith systems, then it could stand to reason that they possess pieces of the puzzle that we currently lack.
As far as God not mentioning them, I'm not certain that's true.
Firstly, I believe there are lost Gospels that talk about Jesus' interaction with otherworldly beings, though I could be wrong on this.
The Mormon faith has a belief in which we as humans will become gods in the afterlife and create our own worlds. By inference one could deduce that those who have already died and have become gods of their own worlds, have created alien life forms on those worlds.
Lastly, references to things such as "angels" or "demons" are simply references to alien life forms which primitive peoples could not understand, and perceived them to be supernatural deities or beings. I.E. any sufficiently high technology will appear as magic to a primitive civilization.
But at this point I don't think anyone on Earth is qualified to answer these questions definitively. Everything is still a big giant question mark.
