Learn how to burn

In all the fuss about burning the Koran, does anyone remember another battle of religions involving fire?
In 1Kings, Elijah and the prophets of Baal have a little challenge - two altars for sacrifice and who can pray for fire? The prophets of Baal do their dance all day long without success.
Elijah drenches the wood. Water overflows the pit. Then fire comes down from heaven to consume the sacrifice.
No need to burn a Koran. Just put it outside and see what happens.
