This is false because the world does not move it only rotates within its own axis. Scientific facts prove that turns counter-clockwise which is an orbital motion towards the east. Visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth's_rotation for more information on earth's rotation.
False. Ignoring the enormous size of the earth, it's a circle. The force is being exerted on all sides. I've read that you could have an earthquake though, but no more than a 5.0. An atom bomb detonating will have a much larger effect. Hows about we blow a couple of them at once while we do it?
Jumping will have no effect on the earth's movement. The earth spins on its axis once a day at approximately 1000 mph. The earth orbits the sun once a year at a speed of 66,000 miles per hour. In addition, our solar system is travelling towards the star Vega at about 43,000 miles per hour. So you see, even if we are sitting and typing on our computers, we are travelling fast through space.

No the now 7 billion and counting would not even be enough to even jolt it, the earth is in a tight orbital lock and has been for years, it would take the force of a sun larger than our own or a black hole, if it were enough due to the fact the earth is round the effect would be too distributed, and Asia will have the most effect due to the population size

Yes, according to Newton, every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so it would move, but it would be in relation to the difference in masses, so the distance the earth would move, would be something like less that the width of a proton, or whatever. Very small, impossible to measure, but factual, due to the principle of the issue. They've proven this stuff time and time again. We've been in space, you know.
