It's true. They only cut off their fingers to get the assassins blade, but during the revolution they changed the technology. Your son is a moron.

Plus even if he did say Altiar, cutting the ring finger off was more out of necessity to use the blade than any ceremony. Unless he plans on using a 13th century hidden blade, cutting off a finger isnt a requirment to stab someone

Well let's hope he was doing it because he thought he had to in order to become an assassin rather than so he can stab someone with a hidden blade.

If by "necessity to use the blade" you mean that they had to vow to take no wife so that they can be completely devoted to the Order, then yeah.

The design of the blade required the removal of the finger, not a vow. In order for this flaw to be resolved, it required the knowledge garnered from an Apple of Eden.

It has nothing to do with it, besides Altair, who is the only one actually cutting his finger off, has his blade on his right arm and it's the left finger that is used to symbolize marriage

Not to mention that all of these people in the games were supposedly Desmond's ancestors, insinuating they all, at some point, married, or at the very least procreated. Desmond tapped into Altair, Ezio, and Connor.

no, in the first few creed (think just 1/2) before davinci, the blade would jut out from the dust where the ring finger generally sat, and so they cut off their right ring fingers(this also stopped them from wearing wedding rings)

I wouldn't expect then to be playing the storyline but they might have seen the merchandise, or watched/played with an older sibling, cousin, etc. I know young children who have played GTA, CoD, etc. so it does happen unfortunately.

Kinda anyways

Just to clarify Ezio has all his fingers because the hidden blade doesn't require the finger as a sacrifice anymore after Leonardo adjusts it,

No, Leonardo. Altaïr, at the time, believed in the method of cutting off the middle finger as a way to show dedication to the cause. Leonardo redesigned the mechanism so that Ezio didn't have to lose his finger.
