Counter-arguments

God is not omniscient

"God doesn't believe in atheists" can be interpreted to mean that God does not know about the millions of people who don't believe he exists, which means that God is not omniscient.

Atheists are lying

Main article: There are no atheists.

This claim can also be interpreted to mean "Atheists secretly believe that there is a god, and God, who is omniscient, knows this."

If this argument is used against an atheist who truly doesn't believe in any gods, it comes across as dismissive and ignorant.

Similar Argument

An equally facile response could be "Batman doesn't believe in people who don't believe in Batman."
