Precession and Axial Tilt
Scoopy writes:

Then I would like to see documentation for Taz's statments about the tilting of the earth changing over time.

In addition to the precession of the equinox as already mentioned (and documented) by EighteenDelta there is also a slight variation in the degree of axial tilt between 22.1 and 24.5 degrees.

For more information, see the following:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precession_of_the_equinoxes

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axial_tilt

Also, as already pointed out, this information is readily available to anyone who bothers to search for it.
