The story has been told of the 'darkest city
in the world' where the sun does not rise for
40 days.




Locals walk down the snow-covered streets
as frozen are gathers outside a shop in the
Russian city of Murmansk



An incredible collection of snaps has revealed
the darkest city on earth where there is no sun
for 40 days.


Photographer Amos Chapple took a "night-
mode" enabled smartphone camera to
document life in Russia’s north through the
polar night.

sweeps over the arctic city



From December 2 until January 11, the sun
does not rise above the horizon in Murmansk.
The city lies in the Russian Arctic circle.

Amos captures a collection of stirring images of
life in the area.



The haunting image shows snow falling as
locals make their way through a forest path



About 100 kilometers to the east of Murmansk,
boats lie frozen in the moonlight late at night.

Murmansk was founded as Romanov-on-
Murman in 1916, when Tsar Nicholas II sought
an ice-free port that would allow war supplies
to be shipped in from Russia’s allies.



Photographer Amos Chapple used just a
smart phone to capture the incredible
images over the city



Within months of the city’s founding, revolution
swept the tsar from power and the city was
renamed Murmansk.

In World War II, Murmansk again became vital
for the Soviet Union and its Western allies.

Cars are completely covered in heavy snow
during the bitter winter in northern Russia
It was a main route for delivering materiel and
aid for the Red Army.

In 1941, Murmansk’s defenders held off attacks
from German forces, but the city was largely
wiped out by Nazi air raids.

Wow.

This is breathtaking! The complexity of the universe and existence itself is beyond mediocre.

I still wonder how atheists are able to convince themselves that life started randomly.

God knew Africans were going to be the weakest beings that's why he blessed our land above all lands.

But unfortunately we haven't moved a step since he created us

Chai!!

Wonders shall never end!


But isn't it interesting? Take a look at the irony-
A city where the sun doesn't rise at all
Is much brighter and looks safer
Than a city that has the sun for more than half of the day

Think about it

Same way you're able to convince yourself that the world was created by a certain God whose son is a Jew, whose idea of 'merciful' involves doing nothing when his faithfuls are persecuted, and who has business centres across Nigeria where tithes and offerings are milked from followers daily.

You're either eck*nkar or GM( or whatever)
Chances are that whatever information you think you have is incorrect.

You do not know the information, yet you know it must be incorrect.

You must be in Christianity, the only people who do not know that Jesus was not a Christian.

I implied that the information is probably incorrect, I didn't say it must be.

Of course, Jesus was not a Christian. He couldn't have been a christian cos Christianity began after his death.
From the Bible account, he's more of a philanthropist (someone who has love for humanity).

Do have a nice day, I'm done here.
