What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


There is a very high probability that the vast majority of the human race are descended from one ancient Patriarch called Abraham, who lived approximately 4000 years ago in Mesopotamia. He was the indirect source of all three great monotheistic faiths and as such these invitations initially apply to religious people within the Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths:

  • I invite those in the Jewish religion to read the Christian Bible and also the Quoran at least once in their lives during the next 12 months.
  • I invite Muslims to read the complete Bible just once in the next 12 months. According to the Quoran, the Bible is the word of Allah as revealed to various prophets before the prophet Mohammed (PBUH). The reason why the Quoran criticises the "People of the book" is for their interfering with the sacred text of the Bible. It's perfectly true. Read what is alleged to have happened a bit later in this book. Nevertheless, the rest of what's there is genuine - why don't you discover it for yourself?
  • I invite Christians to read the Quoran just once in their lives in the next 12 months. It may be surprising to know that the Quoran speaks very, very highly of Jesus and in many passages refers to him as "The Messiah".

I invite everyone to read the Secret Gospel of Thomas. If you are a Christian, it will be a pleasant shock to read the secret words of Jesus, son of Mary The Messiah, in this book. For a brief explanation refer to section 7.77.

Finally, if you have never read the bible, for those who are proficient in English, I recommend the NIV version for accuracy. "The Idiots Guide to the Bible" by Stan Campbell and James S Bell Jr is an excellent reference guide for the novice, although I do not agree with some interpretations. And whatever holy book you are reading for the first time - read it without interpretation from amateur or professional clerics.

And when you’ve finished, read 12-12-12: How to run the World, guided by an idiot.

Maybe the 7th person in your email chain can break the secret code and the 12th person, may hold the key to World Peace. Are you or someone in your family the 7th or 12th person?
