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.
Which, of course, is impossible if your body is dematerialized. Even if the consciousness can somehow exist for a split second while the brain is disintegrated and re-constituted, how can you see without eyes and optic nerves?
I love how the writers never let logic get in the way of a bad episode.
