** There are non-supernatural alternatives which would still scare the scientists. For example, a huge [[ShockSite Goatse]], or something with MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily. Besides, if they were scared by an angel because its existence goes against their beliefs, they would not be rational at all. In order to be rational, they would have to remember the [[EliezerYudkowsky Litany of Tarski]], which in that case would go: "If angels exist, I desire to believe that angels exist. If angels do not exist, I desire to believe that angels do not exist."

* In this timeline, a more threatening and dark Klaatu arrived in the 50s but did a more private demonstration and warning to just a few selected people. Those selected realized that there was no way in hell that they'd be able to do everything Klaatu asked them to do, so spent the next half-century reverse-engineering what little tech he left behind to create the lanyards. It was originally hoped that that technology would be able to be shield the whole world, but before they could create larger versions of it, the blackout came from Klaatu's people.

When he's asked what his original form was, he says "it would only frighten you". But he knows that the people he's talking to are trained scientists, and they would hardly be frightened of an enormous bug or amoeba or whatever. So his original form was something that really would frighten a bunch of rational, agnostic scientists - an angel.

** The Department of Defense used Reapers and other Unmanned Air Vehicles (those giant remote-controlled planes) for that. The control schema for a UAV is very like that for a mecha; the big difference, besides form-factor, is that they are unmanned. Even this [=DoD=] sees that as an advantage.

Fast forward a few centuries after reverse engineering the dead Gort cloud remains, and humanity will start a jihad to make ''{{Warhammer40000}}'' proud against the alien eco freaks. The aliens will [[DidntSeeThatComing never see it coming]] [[GenocideBackfire back to haunt them]], [[IdiotBall either]].
--> '''Klaatu2''': You disgusting machine things are still less than one million times as [[{{CantArgueWithElves}} advanced]] as us.\\
'''Humans''': It does not matter. We have devoured the mass of thousands of stellar systems. We outnumber you one hundred trillion to one. [[{{ZergRush}} Zerg Rush! Zerg Rush! Zerg Rush!]]

They'll eventually end up as something like VideoGame/{{Prototype}} times [[{{Warhammer40k}} the Tyranids]]. And since the aliens think anything natural is soooo much better than technology, they wouldn't do more than smile and nod.
