Mr Green has challenged the adverts on grounds of "truthfulness" and "substantiation", suggesting that there is not "a shred of supporting evidence" that there is probably no God.
Speaking to politics.co.uk distinguished philosopher A C Grayling defended the slogan, saying there was ample justification for the claim.
"The evidential basis for God is the same as for believing there are fairies at the bottom of the garden, and if you don't believe the latter, you shouldn't believe the former," he said.
Professor Grayling admitted secretly welcoming any Advertising Standards inquiry into the adverts, because it would necessarily impact on Christian adverts as well.
Most notably, it could effect the adverts of the Alpha Foundation, an organisation whose advert prompted the atheist response. It organises Christian seminars nationwide and is described by God Delusion author Richard Dawkins as "a pretty dopey sort of organisation".
Hanne Stinson, chief executive of the British Humanist Association (BHA), said: "I’ve sought advice from some of our key people here, but I’m afraid all I’ve got out of them so far is peals of laughter.
