It is like a "did the chicken come first or the egg" question. It has been shown that the poles are always shifting, even if minutely. I'm more
inclined to believe that the two aren't entirely intertwined (with every earthquake causing an axis shift, and vice versa), though massive
earthquakes can cause the poles and axis to shift, so I would suspect that a massive pole shift would cause earthquakes.
