"If by mans activity during the hours of daylight (point of the earth facing the sun) applies force to the surface of the earth, whilst by the hours of darkness he is static, would this activity have an effect (however small) to permanently alter the distance of the earth from the sun"The detonation of a Tsar Bomb at the Mariana's trench, at the bottom of the pacific ocean would surely move the planet out of its current position...
The laws of momentum conservation make this impossible.
Essentially, nothing on earth can change the earth's orbit, because it would have nothing to push against.
Needless to say, gigantic tsunamis would kill most of humans on the process witch given the facts is not entirely a bad thing...
I would say yes and then it would return to normal, as everything settled back to its position.
If you roled earth up into a cone it would still orbit around the path it is now.
I believe the earthquakes shortened the length of days by a few fractions of q second, maybe a Tzar bomb would do that?
That is if none of the mass escaped into space
