In this instance you can and should interchange Borders and Bourne. We are all traveling upon the level of time to that undiscovered country(Heaven) from whose Borders no traveler ever returns. That is what Shakespear was speaking too. It has nothing to do with born as being born again in another realm.
The undiscovered country is death; from Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 1:
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovered country from whose bourn
No traveler returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
There's always some bible sap attempting to make everything about his or her imaginary friend.
It's not like the question wasn't already answered years ago.

There is an historical comedy series about Shakespeare on the BBC, penned by Ben Elton, in the style of Blackadder.

I read the beginning of the thread, which was concerned with the meaning of bourn, but not the question of what the undiscovered country were. (It should have been written bourne.) I didn't read the entire thread. I just get tired of the god botherers trying to make everything about their preferred superstition.
