No Zero, NOT THAT GOD. In Naruto we know of one God...The Shinigami, and One monster referred to as a god...The Juubi.
If there is a Shinigami, then there should be other gods too. If the Gods wanted to send an emmissary to Earth, to introduce Ninjutsu (to help mankind), and to grant deliverance from the Juubi, then creating a Demi-god with God-Eyes, and God-Body power which combine to form the Rinnegan is a great way to do it.
The Demi-God would have God-like Strength and endurance, but would not be immortal. This sounds like the SO6P to me.
Isn't DeathGod a man made creation with pocket dimension belly ? If he really was a Shinigami, wouldn't the souls he ate go to the after life/pure world ?

Perhaps it was made from So6p's or the Older Brother's soul, to aid the future descendants of the Younger One (double K.O. with additional punishment for the Older one ) ?
So6p might have been a Samurai, since we see him with a sword and he wasn't the one that discovered chakra, but the one that found new ways of utilizing it (ninjutsu) with a new ideology (I think ;P). He was the first Shinobi, but before Shinobi, Samurai already existed.
The Jyubi has many names of Gods, mainly the ones of creation and destruction.
We still don't know why the humans where born, was it a coincidence, or where they actually seeds, from which will be born the future food for the Jyubi (this would explain why It continued the cycle of creation and destruction).
I don't think that The Death God is actually a separate dimension created by anyone. I actually think that it is indeed a God although there is no definitive proof of this . I hope that Kishi will eventually flesh out some of these types of details.

One might think of Gods as Extremely powerful, and truly Immortal beings that exist in higher planes of existence, and are able to create lower beings.
I think that the "Death God's Belly" is a separate part of the After-life which is monitored and protected by the Shinigami.
LOL, One of these days, Naruto would use a Talk-No-Jutsu on the Death-God, and sweeten him into letting Minato out...:)
