If God is real why doesnt he show himself?
What poor design by this deity, that we can't look up on him, or hear him speak?
Can you imagine building a computer, that stopped working if you looked at or spoke to it? - It'd be a stupid idea.
Going to a computer shop to buy it.
Customer: I want to be able to do spreadsheets on it
Shop: Certainly. Although I must warn you, that if you look at it, it will die.
It actually sounds like poor excuses as to why you cant see the Emperor's New Clothes. You must have faith the Emperor isnt naked.

According to Malachi 3&4 it asks who can stand when God appears . He is like a refiner's fire . You have to have been obeying all of Jesus' sayings long enough .

You can't see Him because of impaired vision.

He has, but the appearance of Heavenly Father is rare, having given all authority to Jesus, it is Jesus who is seen more often
Jesus and H.F did appear to Joseph Smith in 1820

It is good to think about why God is invisible to human eyes. Well, would you expect to survive a journey to the sun? No, you would burn up long before you got there. God created the sun. Hence, he is far too powerful to be viewed by human eyes. That is why God says in his Word: “No man may see me and yet live.”—Ex. 33:20. If a flesh-and-blood human were to stand in the immediate presence of Jehovah God, the experience would prove fatal. Moses got to see just a part of Jehovah’s glory, evidently through an angelic representative. With what effect? Moses’ face “emitted rays” for some time afterward. The Israelites feared even to look directly at Moses’ face.
BELIEVING THE UNSEEN
Can we believe in a God we cannot see? Well, do we believe in only what we see? No, we very much believe in things we do not see.
In fact, our very lives depend directly upon something we cannot see! What is that? The air we breathe. Without it, we would die in a few minutes. We cannot see the air, but we certainly know that it exists. If you were to hold your breath for sixty seconds, you would appreciate very quickly the air that you cannot see.
We cannot see the wind either, but we do see trees waving in the breeze, and ocean waves tossed about by the wind’s power. We believe that the wind exists because we see its results.
Electricity is invisible. But what amazing things it can do! It lights lamps, heats homes, drives huge machines and makes kitchen appliances work for us. No sensible person doubts that electricity exists just because it cannot be seen.
Radio, television and radar beams are transmitted through the air, unseen. Yet we know that they exist because of the sound or pictures they produce.
Can we see gravity? No, but without it, everything not firmly attached to the earth, including people, would tend to float off into space. A similar force is magnetism. A magnet attracts iron, yet the magnetic field is invisible to our eyes.
The nucleus of the atom is bound together by a powerful, yet invisible, force. But we know the force is real because fantastic amounts of energy are released when the atom is “split” in atomic explosions.
We cannot see X rays, but they can penetrate the body and take pictures of our bones. What would a doctor say if you told him that X rays did not exist because you could not see them?
We do not see odors, but our nose picks them up; bloodhounds even track people by the invisible smell. And we cannot see sound waves either, but our ears pick them up; so we know that they are real. We believe in many things we cannot see, because we observe the evidence, the results they produce. In the same way, we know an unseen Creator exists because we observe the evidence, the results of his handiwork. The Bible says: “For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship.”—Rom. 1:20.
