You said:
If God exists and He is truly omnipotent and benevolent, why doesn't He simply offer us some irrefutable evidence of His existence, thereby saving many souls that might otherwise be damned? Why are parting seas and burning bushes only found in the ancient texts? A single incontestable miracle would be sufficient for me to change my beliefs.

In the discussion between Lazarus and the rich man this possibility is discussed. The reply from heaven is that even if someone was raised from the dead it will not convince.
Also the children of Israel after seeing the miracles were not convinced and died marching in the wilderness misunderstanding because they expected God to be mean and hateful as they were.
God has many attributes and reality is designed for us to find what we wish to find.
If someone has a deep desire to understand and give mercy they will find the mercy of God is more then they could have dreamed.
If someone has a deep desire to find wrath in God they will also find God has more then they could have dreamed.
So in a way He gives us the part of Him that we desire (and practice toward Him) most.
