So, the Crucifixion takes place, the tombs open and the zombies start walking about among the living. Just a normal day in Jerusalem. No source outside of Scripture thought it was worth mentioning. Nobody noticed the zombies? There was no investigation? Nobody wrote about it? Nobody thought to bring in the military to restore order? No panic? There is a distinction to be made here: there is the evidence from multiple sources on a philosopher named Jesus from a place called Nazareth who preached equality (and never said only he was the son of God) and got the death sentence for it (I would compare him to some ancient pacifistic Che Guevara, and "believe" in his existence as much as I do in - for instance - Socrat or Confusius...); and, some made up story to "sanctify" him about two centuries after his death (sentence) by a group of power-hungry individuals at the death bed of (one of) the last (Eastern) Roman emperor... these last stories (about the zombies and such) do not do the Christian philosophy (that was the basis for our current day Western society) a lot of good, nowadays...
