I kill all the 5 member of black ring and lord of lies. Is that the end of divine divinity?

Yes, it is (though the story continues in Beyond Divinity and presumably will be continued again in DD2). Did you not get the cutscene movie after the Demon of Lies died? If not, try killing him again without using traps or summons (though that problem should be fixed with the patch), or combining 2 of Frost on a weapon, Stun on a weapon and the passive Stun skill.

If you did see the movies, a description was posted by Marian in another topic;

I would have never thought that the language of pure image is so hard to understand. We have to think about that in the future...

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

Ascension "Blessing" cutscene
After you got sacrificed by the council of seven your spirit awakes in a divine realms on an altar. Around you the ideas of the seven gods are manifesting. You can roughly separate impish, human, elven or orcish gods...
Everyone of them grabs into their chest and puts a small part of the heart into your weightless shape. After you received all blessing the <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" /> in you is fully developed and so her wings grow and she flies up to the mortal plane where she descends as the reborn hero into the wastelands.

Extro scene
You see the demon of lies dying. In fact you see the mutiliated body of janus ripped into pieces and the leftover, the sword of lies, remains. It comes closer and tries to seduce the hero. The hero is tempted to take it but refuses and sends it back to hell away from the mortal plane.
Then the hero hears the cries of the baby. Knowing that it is the lord of chaos inside the child he/she draws the dagger to kill it. In the hero's moral struggle to kill a neborn innocent child the scene fades out.
Much later you see the hero walk out victorious into the swamp area. He carries something. Loot? The child? You don't know for sure...
Somewhere on a distant hill Arhu and Zandalor watch you coming when suddenly the statue you lifted up in the sky while entering the katacombs of aleroth comes down finally...(side joke, nothing more)

Beyond Divinity is set 20 years after DD, and continues the story line (ie you find out what happened to the baby from the ceremony at the end of DD). It predominantly takes place on another world, though one with ties to Rivellon, so is not really a direct sequel.

There is a demo, if you want to check it out.

Also, note that Beyond Divinity is much more Baldur's Gate than Diablo or Ultima, as you HAVE to control a party in BD. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but if you prefer playing without a party (Like I do) it may irk you a bit. It's still a pretty fun game, but nowhere as good as DD (IMHO, of cours).

Umm all it showed was the baby on the altar <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/question.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/question.gif" alt="" />

It also showed your character approaching the baby with a knife. While you could assume that they decided against killing the baby (to prevent the aspect of the Lord of Chaos possessing it from growing in power) and brought it out of the Black Ring dungeon, Marian pointed out (see quote above) that the cut scenes were deliberately vague on that point, and the Divine One may have killed the baby and been carrying loot out at the end.
