    Lately, I have been choosing the one that gives production and faith to strategic resources. That provides value during the whole game, and really helps you in the early game, as you would want to settle near those resources anyway.

    I absolutely agree that time is the most valuable resource, whether you want to finish your game fast or whether you want to have the time to build and manage your beautiful civilization just the way you want it. But Religious Settlement is not the only one that gives you that, although it is quite useful. For example, playing the Inca, I love using Earth Goddess (however it is not the only one I use with them) because eventually having readily available faith in combination with certain Beliefs, Policies, City States etc., I can buy settlers, workers and other things in no time. I think choosing the right pantheon for the location, civ and especially what you are playing in any game you are can buy you the time you need to accomplish that, maybe not immediately as Religious Settlement does, but later when you most need it. Sometimes choosing not to eat the cookie in front of you now, can give you an opportunity to have more later.

    I would suggest using either Infixo's or pokiehl's pantheon mods from time to time. They spice things up.

    If you already built/ is building >=2 Holy Sites besides river, then river Goddess is a really solid choice.

    If you have a lot of sea resources (for example, >2 in all of you first 3 cities) you shall choose the fish boat +1 production one.

    If you need a religion but afraid of being short on GP point, then choose Divine Spark. The main use of Divine Spark is to help you win the prophet race.

    If my sole intention was to get a prophet, I'm sure I'd rather just run prayers once rather than lock myself into a pantheon that I otherwise didn't want.
