I believe in a theory that is called by some the Polar Configuration. I don’t specifically talk about it much, but I believe it the science and the imagery behind it. There are passages of scriptures that this concept has made crystal clear for me, including making the Book of Revelation much easier to understand.
The LDS church Old Testament says a little about it.
“Immanuel Velikovsky, for example, wrote three books amassing evidence that worldwide catastrophic upheavals have occurred in recent history, and he argued against uniformitarianism, the idea that the natural processes in evidence now have always prevailed at the same approximate rate of uniformity. These books are Worlds in Collision, Ages in Chaos, and Earth in Upheaval. Two Latter-day Saint scientists, Melvin A. Cook and M. Garfield Cook, have also advocated this theory in their book Science and Mormonism. A short summary of the Cooks’ approach can be found in Paul Cracroft’s article “How Old Is the Earth?” (Improvement Era, Oct. 1964, pp. 827–30, 852).” https://www.lds.org/manual/old-testament-student-manual-genesis-2-samuel/genesis-1-2-the-creation?lang=eng
Here are a few articles I have written on the subject.

Here are some articles where the subject has come up.
I believe in the Polar Configuration so much that I took the time to host multiple lectures on the subject.
