737 MAX without MCAS?

Can the Boeing 737 MAX operate safely if the entire MCAS software is deleted from the operating system? The rationale for MCAS was a change in airplane flying and control due to the forward location of the engines. But it seemed the real reason was to avoid extensive pilot training and simulator usse. Well that had a rather colossal failure as a business strategy. SO if the entire MCAS software were deleted why couldn’t pilots learn to fly the MAX lie any other airplane without the death causing MCAS to take control form pilots and tragically in two deadly crashes.
