They move because the hot air compressed underneath them builds up and it must be let out somewhere. This then moves tectonic plates forcing them to rub up against each other creating pressure. Eventually these plates will either crack or brake resulting in an earthquake.
Yeah right, next thing you're gonna tell me that it's actually the earth that orbits the sun and not the other way around.
Sorry but it's true. And I hate to break it to you but there isn't a fat man in a red suit sneaking down your chimney in December to stash gifts under the tree in your living room either.
