Yes, but we get several thousand billion photons a day from Titan; we can see what it's made of, and we can "hear" the rest of the electromagnetic spectrum that's bouncing off it.

They are, typically, basing a "great revelation" on a couple of hundred photons a day, which:

0. Are reflected from and distorted by a very nearby star.

1. Have passed through God-only-knows-what in the twelve light years between us and them.

No-one on their right (as in "honorable") mind would declare with any certainty that there are even planets there, let alone that they could support life.
