Spiritual discussions aside, I side with Dr. McCoy on the issue. It would be shuttles or nothing for me. The reason why has to do with thermodynamics and energy. Even with the most advanced "compensators" and "amplifiers" when Starfleet beams you over to ESD you wouldn't arrive entirely intact. Even if you arrived 99.9997% you haven't completely transported. And when your talking about the hugely important placement and structure of neuro synapses which are pretty tiny the minutae becomes vital.
I say no, not entirely.
