I want to say that compared to religiousness, spirituality is a stronger predictor of well-being. is this sentence correct:
"Spirituality is a stronger predictor of well-being than religiousness"
(note that I do not want to say spirituality is a predictor of religiousness and well-being, instead I want to say spirituality and religiousness are predictors of well-being, and spirituality is a better one).
Can I say: "Spirituality is a stronger predictor of well-being than religiousness is."
Thank you very much in advance,

Mohsenn, you asked this question about half an hour before you posted it again here. Please do not repeat questions. If you wait patiently, your question will normally be answered
I have merged the two threads.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
