# of wires in 1/2" conduit

I am running some outside wiring(12/2 rated for outside use) under my deck for a few flood lights.

Can I run two separate 12/2 wires in a 1/2" conduit? I have two lights that I want on individual switches.

The short answer is "no." I know that doowaditty will appreciate this simple, straightforward answer.

I'll leave it to others to provide the technical details which will only confuse and frustrate you.
