Alex is a Moron (Dialogue)

Me: How do you know you're not a moron?
Alex: How do you know I'm a moron?
Me: What makes you intelligent then?
Alex: What makes me intelligent is that I'm intelligent.
Me: See, you started off with the wrong foot. That's a logical 
fallacy called "circular reasoning," or "begging the question."
Alex: I don't beg for anything.
Me: Well, you are begging the question.
Alex: What question?
Me: What makes you intelligent.
Alex: I'm just intelligent.
Me: It's fine to think that, but what makes you intelligent?
Alex: The fact that I'm intelligent.
Me: Whatever.
