I don’t see how that applies to religion

Plenty of religious claims have been falsified; YEC, demonic possession, efficacy of prayer, faith-healing...

That principle was sought out by 'philosophers' who were more bothered about science then they were about religion/God

Why the scare quotes around philosophers? What are you implying - that true philosophers should never take religion seriously enough to critically examine its claims?

So obviously it would 'disprove' God.

I'm not sure if falsification is the same as complete and permanent disproof, which may be impossible. But if we never find God where believers say we should find him, then that is close enough to disproof for me.
