Universal Time vs. Earth Time

Hello everyone, I'll let you know right now I'm no physics major, but google didn't yield results, so I thought this was the appropriate category to put my question. I need to know how many times faster Earth Time is than Universal time, or rather, how fast time passes on Earth as compared to time passage for the Universe. Time passage is based on mass, correct? Or rather gravity, so I've got the figures for Earth's Mass and the Mass of the Universe.

Earth: 5.9736 ◊ 10^24 kg
Universe: 1.8 ◊ 10^54 kg (Approximate, If you know of a better figure, let me know.

Is there a formula or something for time versus mass?

Thanks.

Firstly let me shock you (Einstein did it to the world last century)

There is NO UNIVERSAL TIME.

Mass, length and time were previously thought to be absolute but now it is known that it depends on the motion of the frame of reference i.e. they are relative.
And this no mere speculation .It has been proved beyond doubt.
Interestingly Einstein did not win the Nobel prize for relativity as nobody really believed in it and its amazing consequences. No wonder Googling didnít help!

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASP!
Well, nevermind then. I just realized that I was using the wrong method anyway. Thanks though.
