In your initial description, you said that suddenly the dash lights went extra bright. This seems to indicate that the alternator was putting out very high voltage; if so, the voltage regulator has gone bad. A properly working charging system puts out about 13.2 to 15.0 volts, but this is a general spec. and the factory service manual should be referenced for the correct charging system voltage specifications for a particular vehicle. A battery should have a static charge of 12.2-12.6 volts.
What could have happened initially is that the very high voltage fried the "crank angle sensor" that's inside the distributor causing no spark. This time after a "need-less" replacement of most of said components, the alternator once again has put out very high voltage and has possibly fried the ECU; the reason being here is that now you're getting spark which says that the "crank angle sensor" is OK, however the fuel injectors are NOT firing. The injector signal pulses originate in the ECU.
At this point, remove the alternator and take it to a shop to get it tested otherwise you'll be chasing your tail needlessly and just throwing your money down the toilet.
As a side note: Get that negative battery terminal properly fastened. There's no reason for it to keep coming off all the time.
KA-T for life, yo!
