How is radiometric dating a viable way to date fossils?

Question by Legs: How is radiometric dating a viable way to date fossils?
If you answer carbon dating or potassium argon you are wrong.
Fossils are dated by which strata they come from, strata are dated by which fossils they contain, which is circular reasoning. Radiometric dating would not even be feasable if the geologic column had not been set up first.

“Fossils are dated by which strata they come from, strata are dated by which fossils they contain, which is circular reasoning.”

By what method do you determine the age of fossils? What is your estimate of the age of various fossils which you feel paleontologists have dated incorrectly?

“Radiometric dating would not even be feasable if the geologic column had not been set up first.”

So you don’t believe in the geologic column?
