humanistic philosophies... influenced many of the Founders, regardless of their personal levels of belief or lack thereof.
However, they specifically did NOT intend to found a Christian nation, in an official, operational, or organizational sense.
And people can "rise from the dead"... if they are accidentally buried alive (comatose; too weak a pulse to detect; etc.)! Most of us know of well-documented occurrences of coffins being opened, wherein the deceased exhibited serious injuries to their fingers and fingernails and the undersides of the coffin lids exhibited bloody scratch marks.
(And if Jesus rose literally from the dead, then perhaps he was that rarest of zombies who--instead of groaning, "Brains!" whilst trying to claw the flesh from the bodies of others--had encouraged his followers prior to his death to actually consume his flesh instead. Now that *is* love!)
What would the Founders do?
