You're not Boeing to believe this, but... Another deadly 737 Max control bug found

'Ideally, Boeing should just admit that the 737 MAX isn't a 737, remove MCAS, and require all pilots who are to fly the thing to obtain certification for the new aircraft type.'

They can't remove MCAS as it wouldn't pass certification. They could provide more training on it (and I'd suggest a dedicated cut-out switch) which would remove the common type rating. This may lose them some sales, but that's better than losing all of them.
