Time and movement

Aristotle makes the monstrous claim:
_adunaton chronon choris kinaeseos einai_
 ("time is impossible separated from movement" De gen et corr. 337a24)
Isn't the opposite the case? Namely:

Movement is impossible without time.

This puts an end to metaphysics.
It may take centuries for this to sink in, if it ever does.
