The results of sacrificing faith seem quite complex mathematically. On the one hand, being able to get more faith in the pool for the same points is great, because it increases productivity. On the other hand, you spend days with much less faith than you would have if you hadn't sacrificed it in the first place. I used to be at 30% more efficiency when I sacrificed my pool, and the efficiency loss is quite noticeable. The diminishing returns of sacrificing, and the opportunity cost of not building magnetos, factories etc. earlier (because the materials for them come 30% slower after the sacrifice) make the matter even more complex.
So, is there a clear "winning" strategy? When, or how often, is it good to sacrifice faith?
As a side question, the text says "bonus will carry over through resets", but the sacrifice itself has a label called "reset" and then there is the possibility to reset the whole game. I assume that the faith bonus stays through faith sacrifice resets but not through game resets, is this the case?
