It could be, or it might have been removed a long time ago and nobody told about it. The same thing is still happening today with ancient artefacts.
If they did find it that would be amazing, but would leave a lot of people bitterly disappointed, and probably end some religions completely, resulting in numerous religious wars again.
Probably best it stays hidden because I don't think we as a race are ready to manage the implications.

'travel agent Malcolm Hutton (writing as Calumy) claimed that the Ark of the Covenant is actually the pyramidion from atop Khufu’s pyramid and that it is currently hidden inside the Kaaba in Mecca.'
I spend most of the last few years being bored and with nothing new seeming to happen and then 2020! I've really missed this sort of thing. Goodbye sober day,,, hello Milky Way!

'you can’t logically keep the Ark on the strength of the Bible while dumping its description.'
That sounds like a challenge to me. I'm pretty sure I could. It does after all have at least two different descriptions. And why assume the pyramid ended in a point and not a platform? Unlikely? Yes. But my home team beat Manchester United once and that was far less likely.

Reading on... This is going to take some research. Seems like my sort of thing too. Thanks for posting! :)

Edit: As someone who listens to the Skeptoid podcast and is basically a skeptical kind of guy, the tone of this article goes beyond skepticism into just mockery and dismissal. He seems pretty ignorant really. Egypt Judaism and the origins of Islam are linked, quite obviously, he doesn't seem to know the Biblical references to the Ark beyond that bit in Exodus or about the Benu stone meteoric rock which was set on a pillar in Egypt. If you are going to sneer, be sure that you really do know it all.

Well if one believes the Ark existed (I do ), then the account of the Bible describes it totally different. It is not a pyramid shape. The article states this. This is not to discount that the missing pyramid cap may have been a powerful piece, but I do not believe it to be the Ark of the covenant. They present no evidence at all. I can see that the one faith would like to say they have the others artifacts. The 2000 year old war between brothers continues.

Back ten years ago or more I read a book by a respected Jewish PhD historian from the UK who claimed he had found the Ark in Zimbabwe. Really a nice gentleman, he took a good bit of time to provide detailed answers to a few questions I sent him.

A couple years later I mentioned in passing I'd corresponded with this professor to a Jewish friend of mine and she very impressed. Apparently the guy is held in very high esteem.

I watched a documentary on this and they showed it to be a wooden bowl of sorts. It did not fit the description at all. There is also another place ( I can’t remember but I believe it’s in Africa), that claims to have housed the Ark in a holy church and only the assigned priest can go in with it. He takes a vow for life. Nobody but this person has ever seen it so it’s really unknown if it is really there. Destination Unknown with Josh Gates did a show on it.

Yes, you're talking about the church in Ethiopia. That always struck me as an intriguing possibility considering the history of Ethiopian Jews and Israeli clandestine military operations to evacuate them to Israel in the 1990s.

They seriously act like they have it. I felt sorry for the poor priest that has to live his whole life alone behind those walls.
