Take a closer look.

See how the inner parts of its walls consist of a series of collapsed terraces?

See also the central mountain peaks on the crater floor? How were these formed?

See also how flat and level the crater floor is. Why is the floor not curved and bowl shaped at the bottom?

Still convinced it was formed by a meteorite?

In my opinion the terracing is evidence of a domed feature collapsing and this explains the central mountain peaks which 'Bounced back' against the collapse.
You seriously dont know how the peaks in the middle were formed? lol They are prime evidence that this is an impact crater. Its called a central uplift.
As for the collapsed terraces you often to see the ejecta form just such a pattern, especially on Earths moon and other terrestrial bodies in the solar system.
At least try to learn some of the science before spouting off such nonsense.
If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate.
