I thought the north pole was moving southward, until it reaches a point where it 'flips' and then settles somewhere near the south pole. Source: Discovery: How the Earth Works. Also, Everest is 29k+ miles tall, so the number you've given, (3,977 miles), is more likely off by a decimal point if it's true; 39770 miles (above sea level?) There are other inaccuracies as well, but of minimal importance.

The North Pole can not move any more "north" than it currently is. It can move any other direction other than north.

4 is incorrect, Terra Mater is a Roman Goddess, and Terra is the name of Earth.
