I'm currently debating a creationist who is trying to say Darwin's theory of evolution was actually something he stole from a creationist named Edward Blythe (which I don't understand that). So I did research to see Edward did come up with the concept of Natural Selection and did talk with Darwin at times. But I cannot find any secular sources or letters written from Edward that indicated he was a creationist. Can somebody help me out?

I don't know about that, but part of his theory was inspired by a man whose name was Thomas Malthus.
