Stone Circles is easily one of the best Faith-producing pantheons. Not only is Stone one of the most common Bonus Resources, but the quarriable resources ( Stone, Marble and Gypsum) tend to form groups of 2-3 instances. Even without building Stonehenge, players who choose this pantheon when they have a large number of potential Quarry sites will rapidly generate Faith, which they can use to purchase a Great Prophet and be one of the first civilizations to found a religion.
If the appropriate resource is available to your Capital and no other obvious choice is visible, Stone Circles is a safe go-to Pantheon. While this may delay your harvesting of Stone resources until the extra Faith has become too marginal, this is not necessarily a bad thing - it merely means that those resources will be used toward later-game buildings, or maybe not, as by then your Quarries may generate additional Gold and/or Production enough to be valuable on their own.
