The transporter KILLS you and then creates a perfect duplicate of you somewhere else, a duplicate who has every single one of your memories except the moment of your DEATH. That's why people in the Star Trek universe think that transporters are safe. It's because people DIE every time they step onto that thing, but they can't warn anybody.
Remember what I just said. The episode "Realm of Fear" proves that the transporter does not kill you. This is because we see that Barclay's consciousness is uninterrupted - from the moment he steps onto the pad until the end of the transport. And he even sees things while being transported.
