    Religion:
    It exists
    If you are traveling into the sunset in a eurofighter typhoon, outpacing the earth's rotation at that altitude, to where it looks like sunrise instead of sunset, are you reversing time?
    Why or why not?

    No. You are simply changing location continuously. Time passes regardless of your position or orientation.

    Correct.
    Actually, time passes slower (relative to an outside observer) when you're travelling very fast or when you are near a great mass.

    no, although you slow down time very slightly for yourself, why, relatively.
