Time Travel

A couple of years ago, there was a discussion, prompted by PJ, about what exactly is going on in the first Superman movie after Lois Lane is killed in the earthquake. Superman flies around the Earth a bunch of times and reverses its rotation. This is supposed to reverse time. But that makes no sense. We argued about what was actually being depicted in the movie, but I don't think anyone came up with a very plausible explanation.

I asked this question over at the (very interesting) Ask Philosophers website. David Papinaeu replied.
