here, here.

There are an infinite number of points on a line drawn between point A and
B. Though discussion over strengths and weaknesses of the two is healthy
and can only lead to more robust theory by generating more plausible
alternative ideas along the way. Don't forget that trees and ground are
usually found in the same environments (though not 100% of the time as in
swamp lands, but you get the idea).
