Considering 'they' are experts who have dedicated their life to this kind of stuff, yes, I do believe them. Because I know enough to know what I don't know.

Also the Daily Mail is literally the opposite of a credible source.

And what about the signal which came from it? http://blogs.esa.int/rosetta/2014/11...singing-comet/

The 'signal' is magnetic weirdness. It is massively unlikely that it carries any kind of meaning. While explaining electromagnetism is hard, creating a field of it is fairly simple.
