A Question About Time That Someone May Be Able To Answer

I've had a question on my mind for awhile that I hope someone here can answer.

Simply, I'm curious as to whether or not we really know if 'time' actually exists, i.e. is it anything other than a unit of measurement we have created based upon the rotation of our planet around the sun.

I ask this because if we don't really know that 'time' exists, then how do we know that einsteins theory that says time slows (and I believe it is thought that it will stop) when you get to the speed of light is actually correct?

I know this question may be elementary for some of you, so I would appreciate a response in 'laymans terms' if you can!

Thanks in advance to anyone who responds.
