Was the Great Pyramid of Giza always without a capstone?

When you take a look at the Great Pyramid you will find it is missing the apex. It has a flapped top which is unlikely for a pyramid. When a Pyramid was constructed in the ancient times capstone or top stone formed an integral part of the structure. It was so special that most pyramids used special stones or even gold at their apex. So, the capstone was highly decorated. But why is the Great Pyramid without a capstone? Was the structure always like this? Or was the capstone stolen or destroyed at a later date?

As people from the present generation we will not be able to tell. But some accounts during the times of Jesus Christ report that the Pyramid was without a capstone during those times too. May be the pyramid was never finished in the first place. Due to some political decisions the pyramid was left unfinished and the architects never had a chance to place the capstone which would provide the final finishing touches to the pyramid.

Some scholars feel viewing the importance of the great pyramid that it had a golden capstone which was the first thing to be looted. This could be a logical explanation alright but there is a slight problem. The Great Pyramid is an elaborate structure. If there was a capstone it would be very large indeed. If you climb on top of the pyramid you will find there is ample space to walk around freely. So, you can well understand the weight of this capstone. It is not possible for the looters to steal such a heavy object without being noticed.

Even if it was destroyed in any natural catastrophe there would be some parts of the capstone remaining till date. Many Egyptologists have searched intensely for this capstone but without any success. Such a heavy chunk of stones or gold cannot vanish overnight.

There were no references of Pyramid's capstone even in ancient texts

Another strange fact that has come to the fore about Great Pyramid of Giza is its top half has strange electro-static waves. One of the British inventors and explorers Sir Siemen climbed up to the top of the Pyramid and when he raised his fingers he heard strange ringing noise. His bottle of wine got electrocuted. Did the Egyptian masters know something which we don’t? Was absence of the capstone a part of strategy to counter these electro-static waves?

Controversy about this missing apex was raised by the one dollar bill currency in US. This currency shows the Great Pyramid of Giza with an apex. Is there a bigger mystery in it? We will have to wait and watch.
