Eh, I'd say that Darwin's idea, that the origin of the species was through evolution via natural selection, is not falsifiable.
Evolution and natural selection are two different things.
Yes, I'm well aware. That's why I specifically cited evolution, and not natural selection.

So my point in making the distinction was an attempt to say that evolution might be falsifiable (in expert opinion) but that natural selection is not falsifiable (in expert opinion) or both are not falsifiable (in expert opinion). Those are three different things, so I'd rather be clear on what you think the consensus is on specific points. Otherwise it's too general.
