Not to mention martyrs burned at the stake, and people who opt for
cremation and scattering of ashes... Resurrection for these folks?

"Resuscitation" would be essentially the return of Jesus' body to its condition before death. OTOH resurrection as Paul speaks of it in I Cor.15 means transformation of the "physical body" into a "spiritual body," not some process which bypasses the physical.
