which interpretation is true? Does the last sentence of this paragraph: "The paper was a hoax, produced to demonstrate that postmodernist, socially constructed analyses of science were based on ignorance, prejudice and hilariously muddled thinking. Peppered with scientific errors, the paper had been accepted without question because it supported the prevailing political and cultural orthodoxy of the journal and its constituency. It was difficult for even the most rigorous cultural theorist to come up with a defense that had any clear credibility in the science world." mean : 1. It was difficult for even the most rigorous cultural theorist to defend this hoax paper the way that had credibility in the science world. 2. It was difficult for even the most rigorous cultural theorist to write papers that enjoyed credibility in the science world. 3. It was difficult for even the most rigorous cultural theorist to write such a hoax paper without any scientific credibility.
