The Role of Religion in Decision Making

Do Religion, Yoga, Meditation play any role in correct decision making?
Our religions preach many virtues which are age old and long lasting. They are playing a vital role in many people's lives.
- Do they also impact our decision making ability or capability?
- Should they? Or do atheists have an advantage of being unbiased when they're making decisions?

Role of Religion in Decision Making is Limited

I think that overall, people who have higher levels of education are less likely to rely on religious sources (Bible, Koran, Qur'an, Vedas, etc.) and the teachings of their place of worship for guidance in their decision-making. In particular on a literal interpretation thereof. Education exposes people to critical thinking and scientific thought; it generates a cognitive flexibility. These rational processes and skills tend to be incompatible with a reliance on religion for decision making.
This does not alter the fact that certain ethical, moral and religious teachings can sometimes provide a useful background when making important decisions.
