In other words "our society has modified and tempered with traditional values and beliefs for their own selfish wants" to me this quote seems like a negative view, not one the speaker is enthusiastic about. He/she is not pleased with the way the "world has skewed values"

But hey as with many forms of literature, especially quotes they can be interpreted many different ways so read more than one response. Hope this helped

No. A distribution may be non-skewed and bimodal or skewed and bimodal. Bimodal means that the distribution has two modes, or two local maxima on the curve. Visually, one can see two peaks on the distribution curve. Mixture problems (combination of two random variables with different modes) can produce bimodal curves. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bimodal_distribution A distribution is skewed when the mean and median are different values. A distribution is negatively skewed when the mean is less than the median and positively skewed if the mean is greater than the median. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skewness
