Why use a pastebin if you're not going to include the entire contents. 
Besides, attaching the file would have made your message self-contained.

I'd try with a minimal xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "WhatEver"
	Driver      "fglrx"

or even *no* xorg.conf and the radeon driver. Please mind fglrx might be 
blacklisting the necessary radeon kernel module (at least nvidia has to
with nouveau), so it might not work without a few tweaks.
